Doris Day looks no more like the real Calamity Jane than you or I do, but this 1953 film is intended as a lighthearted musical, not a historical ... Show synopsis

  • What a great movie! Dec 28, 2016
    by IBooks1

    Doris Day is sensational as Calamity Jane and Howard Keel is a terrific Wild Bill Hickok in this musical tour de force. It may not be historically accurate but we wish the Wild West was half as much fun as this superb movie. I truly enjoyed it and I think that you will also.

  • Plain Jane? Guess Again! Mar 12, 2010
    by mehaul

    TITLE: Calamity Jane
    GENRE: Musical/Comedy/Western
    CAST: Doris Day, Howard Keel
    PLOT: Martha Jane Canary aka "Calamity Jane" assumes the responsibility to secure the services of a famous 'Chicagee' actress for the entertainment of the men of Deadwood City in the Black Hills. She is hoodwinked by a wannabe actress into thinking she is the famous actress. They both travel back to Deadwood where the hoax is discovered but this is Hollywood not Deadwood all turns out well and everyone finds love.
    RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 7.5 of 10; This is not the best Western. This is not the best comedy. This is not the best musical. This IS the best exhibit of the athleticism, singing, dancing and acting of one of America's sweethearts: Doris Day. She shows she was our best at those efforts all at once.
    DVD BONUS: Subtitles and some B&W footage of early 50's newsreels of the celebration of the movie's production out in the Black Hills area.
    ADDED NOTES: Not a lick of the sets, costumes, characters and story is true but the movie is enjoyable none-the-less.

  • My Favorite Doris Day Movie! Jan 27, 2010
    by mtin33

    Calamity Jane is one of Doris Day's best films. It is enjoyable and worthwhile. Once you watch this film, you will be singing the songs right after. This is one of those films that you could watch over and over again with your family of by yourself. I got my friends and my mom into this film and all of them enjoyed it greatly. Doris Day plays one of her best roles and the cast is exceptional. A total must watch.

  • Love This Movie Feb 19, 2009
    by Emmet

    I searched for years to get this movie. Finally I came upon Alibris and was able to locate it through them. It arrived and it was exactly what I expected. New condition in shrink wrap so I was confident in its condition. I love Doris Day (I thing my wife is jealous) and this musical will touch you with feelings of warmth and laughter. Its so hard to find a movie these days that is worth the watch. I love this movie. So will you.
