She fought the Indians alongside Custer, witnessed the birth of Deadwood and was close friends with Buffalo Bill. She was the terror of the plains, the outrage of the saloons, the oddest of her kind.

Back from a special screening, I must say I was surprised and amazed by the lady. If you thought Doris Day was a great Calamity Jane then you know nothing. " Calamity Jane, wild west legend " is a unique portrait of an iconic figure. Sound design, score, archives and a clever directing pay tribute to the woman behind the legend. Though complex, the film successfully portrays the intimate character, the woman, the wife and the mother. Yes she was an orphan, yes she was rude and dirty, yes she was a hard drinker, yes she was a sharpshooter and yes she was a sensitive person. After years of research filmmaker Gregory Monro accomplishes tremendous piece of history. As entertaining as classy.
