You really can see that she is enjoying. Calamity Jane was one of the best musicals I did see, and Doris did show that she could do every thing, her acting, dancing, singing, and her comic acts were perfect. I also wonder why she never did receive a award for her role of Calamity Jane.The movie got a AA award for the best song "Secret Love" a AAN for "Best film score" and a AAN for "sound recording", but no "Best actress" , well they must shame, there in Hollywood.
To my opinie she had right of a award, she did play her role of Calamity Jane perfect. And no one else can do what she did, make the movie, musical that what it is now, a great movie.

I just saw this movie today... and loved every minute of it.. I didn't want it to ever end..

did anyone notice in the drag act.. that the "girl" Francias dropped "her" black scarf, and then in the next shot, he had it again... you can tell they put two different shots together...

or maybe it's only me???

any way.. this movie is now close to the top of my list

Calamity Jane is one of the super best movies of Miss Day, even I saw it for several times, it's never boring, the songs are beautiful, and Miss Day acting is more than marvellous. I never could understand why she did't got a oscar for her acting in that movie, they were really blind in Hollywood at that time.

Did anyone else notice that Doris's six shooter had seven shots? I always thought that this was probably someone's idea of movie making humor.

Wie gehts?

Calam is drinking around the bar and finds out Danny has been captured by an Indian, so she goes off to rescue him. It is about 12 minutes into the film. 8)

I like watching this because it is clear Doris Day is in great shape. Her ease in jumping up on the bar is so great.

I'm not a big fan of Howard Keel. (just the voice type and all that) but I think the movie works.

I was always wondering - Did Doris do the riding herself (escpecially the hopping on the horese and pursuit of the coach) or was it a double?

The jump on the coach in full speed probably was a double, but the rest?

(Do you use "double" for a stuntman/woman?)

One of the things I love about this movie is , that I can show it to my sisters children and they love it like I do.I guess the word im trying to come up with is timeless... What I loved as a child these kids love too.Calamity worked all the way for me, doris was great as always (I too wondered if she did most of her own stunts .) and cast and crew did a wonderful job. The photos of the behind the scenes are really nice, wow there is alot of people on a set, it looked down right crowded lol. :shock:

OKAY this movie is sensational to me - the more I watch it the more I like it.
Before I watched it I've seen a couple of scenes on youtube and thought - "Oh no - no movie for me at ALL" didn't like what I saw.(I know weird me - ) I postponed watching it ... then finally first time I was rather surprised that it wasn't at all as bad as I had feared ... quite on the contrary - I kinda liked it time thinking its OKAY - nice - but not really THAT great as all you guys seem to think ... but then I got talking about it ... and rewatching it .... listening to the songs again - rewatching it - and now I really really LIKE it. Its definitely FUN to see Doris in that movie. If I keep watching it I probably very soon am going to absolutely LOVE it *lol*. Actually I'm listening I CAN DO WITHOUT YOU as I write .... fun.
I think I'll watch it again tonight :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
