Ooooooooooooooooooh all that subtext!

You can do nothing but love this.

Yes, it's sugary sweet and ridiculously sentimental - but it sure does have a heart of gold and some damn fine tunes.


The(ir) Blurb...

Deadwood, Dakota Territory, is largely the abode of men, where Indian scout Calamity Jane is as hard-riding, boastful, and handy with a gun as any; quite an overpowering personality. But the army lieutenant she favors doesn't really appreciate her finer qualities. One of Jane's boasts brings her to Chicago to recruit an actress for the Golden Garter stage. Arrived, the lady in question appears (at first) to be a more feminine rival for the favors of Jane's male friends...including her friendly enemy Wild Bill Hickock.
