I actually prefer this one to the somewhat similar Annie Get Your Gun. Doris Day is just adorable as Calamity, and she and Howard Keel make a great duo. A fun musical and well worth watching!
This movie is a ton of fun, but the idea that Doris Day sans-makeup (or, at least, not dolled-up) isn't still incredibly beautiful is just silly. The idea that Calamity isn't what most might call seductive or ladylike comes across, but in no way is she not attractive. If anything, her rootin'-tootin' attitude makes her sexier than your typical '50s actress type.
How long after the wedding does Wild Bill get shot in the back?
