How the West was Sung!

… That actually might be one of the original marketing slogans for the film. Hmmm. Anyway, Calamity Jane was, I believe, the first Doris Day film that I ever saw. For a little cowgirl in Cheyenne, Wyoming, it was the perfect movie to get me all excited about history and love affairs between two gunslingers and… well… until a few years ago when I saw HBO’s Deadwood. Needless to say, this version of the story is far prettier, light-hearted, and shamelessly-sappy, but I love it. This song in particular.
