Event description

Description

Calamity Jane is one of the last original studio musicals before the Rogers and Hammerstein crowd took over; and it's from Warner Brothers, who generally came in second to MGM in most categories in this genre. But Warners had Doris Day, a powerhouse of talent who made stale material fresh, and fresh material shine. Calamity Jane is dated in many ways, but nothing about Day begs for an apology. Calamity Jane also boasts a terrific Sammy Fain-Paul Francis Webster score — some dozen numbers, most of which are winners. The opening, Deadwood Stage, is a rouser, The Black Hills of Dakota is a haunting ballad, and the Oscar-winning Secret Love (beautifully sung by Doris Day) has become a standard.
