A Musical Western
‘Calam’ dresses like a man, totes a gun and drives the Deadwood City stagecoach. Well-meaning, but disaster-prone, she tries to help the local saloon proprietor out of a jam by promising to fetch a music-hall star from Chicago. A hilarious comedy, it nevertheless has many tender moments and some very famous numbers, including “Secret Love”, “Black Hills Of Dakota, “Deadwood Stage” and “Windy City”.
Deadwood City’s two most famous peace officers, Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hikock, get involved in saving the neck of Henry Miller, the local saloon operator. It seems that “Millie” has been promoting a beautiful actress named Frances Fryer, but Frances turns out to be a boy, Francis. Millie’s attempt to cover up is soon unmasked by the angry miners. To keep the peace, Calamity sets out for Chicago to bring back the miner’s real heart-throb, Adelaide Adams. What happens next is more mistaken identities; but at the end true love is found!
