The accent is on realism in this thoughtful portrait of one of the Old West's most unsual and colorful personalities. Born Martha Jane Canary, "Calamity Jane" (Jane Alexander) could ride, shoot, track and brawl as good as any man. In fact she preferred the company of men over women, which often got her into trouble with the "proper ladies" of her time. Her busy life included stints as a stagecoach driver, army scout, farmer and prospector, as well as a possible relationship with Wild Bill Hickock. Trick rider, crack shot, expert poker player, wife and mother, Calamity Jane was one woman who insited on living life her way. With its focus on people, 'Calamity Jane' is a poignant story of a larger than life individual who became a legend in her own time. She's won her place in history...Now she'll take her place in your heart.
