“Many films use the ‘eternal love triangle’ theme; in this case, it’s a rectangle. Calamity (Day) dresses, talks and shoots like a man, but is smitten with Lt. Danny Gilmartin (Philip Carey); her close friend, Wild Bill (Howard Keel, TV’s “Dallas”) has a similar crush on singer/actress Katie Brown (Allyn Ann McLerie); but Danny and Katie are interested in each other. Could be trouble a-brewin’ there.” – Brett Willis, CSE Reviews. There is a lot to recommend Calamity Jane, from a great musical score, an affable crew of actors and even the fact that Calamity Jane teeters on the edge of cult film status for its Wild West gender bending. 101 minutes. Unrated.
