Calamity Jane (musical)

The 1953 film, Calamity Jane, unlike most musicals, originated in Hollywood and only later transferred to the stage. It is loosely based on the life of Wild West heroine, Calamity Jane.

The film was devised by Warner Brothers in response to the success of Annie Get Your Gun[?]. It starred Doris Day as Calamity Jane and Howard Keel as Wild Bill Hickok[?].

The score, with music by Sammy Fain[?] and lyrics by Paul Francis Webster[?], includes such classic songs as:

  • "The Deadwood Stage"
  • "Windy City"
  • "The Black Hills of Dakota"
  • "My Secret Love"
