Calamity Jane (1953)

Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok fuss, feud and fall in love. At first, Calamity is too busy fighting Indians and cracking a bullwhip to pay attention to such girlie things as dresses and perfume. She soon changes her mind when Katie Brown arrives in town.


If this was remade into a modern version, then it would be about a lesbian couple trying to make a start as strippers at a local club.

I actually prefer this one to the somewhat similar Annie Get Your Gun. Doris Day is just adorable as Calamity, and she and Howard Keel make a great duo. A fun musical and well worth watching!
