Editorial Reviews

Spanning the years from the 1870’s to the turn of the century; CALAMITY JANE chronicles an uncommon woman’s wild and woolly life; including her unorthodox affair with the legendary lawman Wild Bill Hickok; and the birth of their daughter. This film takes a very realistic look at one of the few liberated women in the old west.

Two-time Emmy®Award Winning* and four-time Oscar Nominee** Jane Alexander stars as CALAMITY JANE. Joining her in the star-studded cast is Frederic Forrest as Wild Bill Hickok; Ken Kercheval as the flamboyant Buffalo Bill Cody; and David Hemmings as the aristocratic stepfather of Jane’s illegitimate daughter.

If you have seen the musical "Calamity Jane" with Doris Day then you need to see the REAL story. Calamity was more than a song a dance- she was a true independant pioneer woman. This biopic is a very frank potrayal of the real Calamity Jane. It depicts her as a real person with real problems. Jane Alexander delivers a remarkable performance- including a smile a dentist would shudder over. If you are into American History, particularly 19th century western, then I highly recommend this movie.

I loved this movie! Jane Alexander did a great job portraying Calamity Jane as the wild, gritty woman of the west but also exposed her softer side as she struggled with giving away her baby, the weakness she had for Wild Bill, and the shattering grief of his death. However, for me, Frederic Forrest stole the show as Wild Bill Hickok. I have read a lot of material about Wild Bill Hickok, and Frederic Forrest brought him to life -- probably much better than he actually was. With his squint-eyed gaze, long hair, and dark good looks, he played the sexiest Wild Bill I've ever seen!! Frederic Forrest is so great in westerns - rivals Clint Eastwood in flinty coolness! Although the story is rather sad, I loved this movie and want to purchase it so I can watch it again.

Jane Alexander really captures the role (she was nominated for an Emmy for it) and Frederic Forrest turns in a scene stealing performance as Wild Bill Hickok in this adaption of the real life story of the famous Calamity Martha Jane Canary. The film picks up where she first meets Wild Bill, the love of her life, and follows her through her ups and downs of her life. It is definitely worth a watch. While it is a bit depressing she was one of our great pioneer figures of the west and Jane Alexander turns in a great performance.

This video was obviously made for television, but it is definitely worth watching, even with the obvious fade aways for commercials. It is a realistic rendition of Jane's life, and I enjoyed it tremendously. Jane Alexander is very believable as Calamity Jane; and I have a whole new respect for the life of a very talented woman who spent her life for Wild Bill Hickock. I found myself sobbing at the end!

Definitely not your Doris Day version of this historical figure. Much darker and probably one of the most accurate portrayals of this lady o the West.

My daughter requested information about Calamity Jane. Found it here. Always glad to make the kids happy. This gives a good historical account of her.
