Thank you for such a great seris This is a beautiful movie.
Jane Eyre fan
There are historical inaccuracies, and some Hollywood liberties taken here and there, but overall the movie has entertainment value, even beyond the A-list cast.

Buffalo Girls is one of the best made-for-tv movies from the 1990s and it is a pleasure to have this forever on DVD.

The film stars Anjelica Huston, Melanie Griffith, Peter Coyote, Sam Elliot, Gabriel Byrne, Liev Schrieber, Jack Palance, and Reba McEntire. Even if the film hadn't been as well written as it was, the sheer star power of the film would have carried it through.

Huston plays Calamity Jane expertly with such emotion and understanding of the character. Melanie Griffith was my favorite, however, playing ex-madame Dora DuFran, Calamity's best friend. Her story is an emotional rollercoaster, and Griffith's incredible skills as an actress shine through here. Sitcom star Reba McEntire plays Annie Oakley, and it's a shame that her role in the film is so small. In the 3-hour film, she is maybe in it a total of fifteen minutes. I think Reba is wonderful and it would have been nice to see more of her as Annie. All in all, a great, involving movie that is a joy to experience.

The DVD from Platinum Disc Corporation has no extra features, but luckily presents the movie as it originally aired on TV, in two seperate parts. The earlier VHS release had the two parts edited together into one long movie and had a scene edited out. It's nice to have the Buffalo Girls in it's original form. The picture quality is perfect and the sound is a robust 2-channel stereo track with surround seperation at very appropriate times in the film.

For the low price Amazon is offering this 3-hour DVD at, it is ridiculous not to buy it. Even if you are not a fan of westerns (I certainly am not), it will still keep you entertained!

Ok, so you have to get through some TV movie hokieness to appreciate this movie. At first, I was distracted by the awkward direction, acting, and accents, and the general TV-movieness of it all. But as the movie went on, I was able to overlook those things and started to enjoy it, especially Angelica Huston as Calamity Jane. Some quality about her, a grittiness and strength, seems just right for the role.
Melanie Griffith is not always a favorite of mine, but she has a sweetness that makes her Dora enjoyable. Gabriel Byrne as the lovelorn Blue makes a good match for her. He is suitably and touchingly romantic here, not as much "darkness" to his character as in most roles.
I enjoyed their story, though I was distracted at first by that heavy Texas drawl issuing from Byrne's mouth. It was fine when I got used to it, though it did start me thinking that probably there were a lot of cowboys with Irish, Scandinavian, German and other accents--immigrants. The only reason we think of all cowboys with a Texas drawl is Hollywood.
I also thought the movie shortchanged Indian women a bit. What does Blue's Native American wife think of being married to a white guy who doesn't love her? That's sad for her, and in a movie about women of the Old West, would have been a good angle to the story.
Westerns usually show Indian women as victims or passive prizes for "sympathetic" white men. In reality, Indian women often had much more autonomy and power than European women. The idea of being given as a "prize" to a white men would have been entirely against their culture. (To learn more about Native American women, I recommend the writings of James Alexander Thom, a historical novelist whose wife is Native American.

Angelica Huston rocks in Buffalo Girls, in which she plays Calamity Jane. This movie plays fast and loose with history and fiction, but what good 'true' movie doesn't. A great take on a woman's perspective of the Old West.

i'm twelve years old and i am a fan of Anjelica Huston

i thought the movie was great.Anjelica is so awesome in this movie and if you don't like her in this you have lost your mind.

the movie starts out where Calamity Jane(Anjelica Huston)is entering the army and relizes that she loves this wild cowboy named Bill Hicock(Sam Elliot).later he leaves her pregnant.although she thought it was just so strange since she was much of a tomboy in this movie.her friend Dora has her own troubles to deal with.i also like Lonesome Dove.if you havn't seen that then you should see that as well.Anjelica is in Lonesome Dove too.i didn't think that she was my favorite character in Lonesome Dove.she played Clara Allen.my mom says that when does westerns she's not that good because she doesn't look western.although she was the best in Buffalo Girls.i enjoyed sooooo much!!!!!!so did my mom.i don't think that anyone else could have been Calamity Jane as well as she did.

it is excellent you must see it!!!!

good actors, great story... some good action too... this is great movie to help put together the bits and pieces of the stories you've heard about Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and more. It all may be true history, it may be fictional, it may just be myths mixed with fact, but whatever the case, there's more truth than not in this version of the 1870's

This is a very touching movie about lives at the end of the period known as the "wild west. The acting is done well, well known actors are in the movie. I recommend it to anyone, especially women, who are interested in the old west.
