PlotCulture reviews the classic Doris Day musical “Calamity Jane.”
Saddle up Cowboys and get ready for a rolicking rip roaring adventure into the Old West….of 1950s Hollywood Musicals anyway.
A story based very very loosely (READ: Not at all) on the life of real frontier woman Calamity Jane. (It only shares her name. She’s a badass lady that you should read about. Go read about her. She’s awesome. This movie has nothing to do with her)
The film follows Calamity Jane as she attempts to win a bet and the man of her dreams, while fighting off racist stereotypes of Native Americans and setting up her lesbian love shack with Katie Brown. Oh there’s also her best friend, and this dude she thinks she loves, but that’s really not important.
These are actual lyrics from a song these two sing to each other. Calamity Jane/Katie Brown. Make it a thing people, make it a thing.
HEAR us talk about Lesbians! Gender Roles! And the impact of World War II on Women’s roles in film and media!!
SEE the film and make up your own opinion! Then share* it with us!!!
TASTE nothing because that would be creepy. Seriously. Keep your tongue in your face and away from us.
Thistle likes this movie because Thistle likes obscure fandom femslash pairings. Thistle has created a bunch of images for ya’ll to share about the internet like the plague. Please Enjoy.
The movie covers very important things, like relationships:
Moving in Together
Getting ready for Parties
Keeping your head up when Parties don’t go the way you planned
