      Calamity Jane (A Musical Western) is a stage musical based on the historical figure of frontierswoman Calamity non-historical, somewhat farcical plot involves the authentic Calamity Jane's professional associate Wild Bill Hickok, and presents the two as having a contentious relationship that ultimately proves to be a facade for mutually amorous feelings.   Recently I was scrolling through my photo files and ran across a photo of Miss Doris Day from her musical hit, Calamity Jane and thus inspired, I pulled up a story I’d written several years ago on Martha Jane. Turns out I should have looked at the notes I took a few years later when James McLaird, author of Calamity Jane, The Woman and the Legend, gave a talk at a Wild West History.

      Martha Jane Canary was a tobacco-spitting, beer-guzzling, foul-mouthed woman who preferred men’s clothing to dresses. She was well known through the Hills as Calamity Jane, but how she got this nickname is a legendary debate. According to Old West legend, Calamity Jane rode into a group of fighting hostiles to save a wounded army captain. Cannary, Martha Jane (–)Legendary frontierswoman, known as Calamity Jane, who did exactly as she pleased in her own colorful manner, thus significantly contributing to the lore of the Wild West. Name variations: Calamity Jane; Martha Jane Burk or Burke; Marthy Jane Canary. Source for information on Cannary, Martha Jane (–): Women in World History: A Biographical.

        Karen R. Jones zeroes in on the core truths by analyzing the many portrayals of Calamity Jane in a wealth of sources: dime novels, film, radio, TV, comic books, biographies, masters theses. Directed by David Butler. With Doris Day, Howard Keel, Allyn Ann McLerie, Philip Carey. The story of Calamity Jane, her saloon, and her romance with Wild Bill Hickok.

It's Calamity Jane this time, along with her friends Annie Oakley, Frank Butler, and Wild Bill Hickok. And werewolves. And other suprises that I'll stay hushed about so not to spoil the fun. 4 bright, hilarious 🌟s/5(). Martha Jane Cannary (May 1, – August 1, ), better known as Calamity Jane, was an American addition to many exploits she was known for being an acquaintance of Wild Bill in her life, she appeared in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show and at the Pan-American is said to have exhibited compassion to others, especially to the sick and needy.

Most accounts of Calamity Jane’s life, including her own autobiography, are full of untruths and exaggerations. Her colorful legend lives on in discredited stories, books and films.

Dora died of heart. Calamity Jane never rode with Custer, never served as an army scout or a Pony Express courier, and did not apprehend Bill Hickok’s killer. As such, she presented something of a conundrum, in the words of early biographer Leonard Jennewein, “the hero who performed no heroic deeds.”.

Calamity Jane herself is a fine mix of insecurity, fierce spirit, audacity, tenderness, tenacity, love, and hate. She is fifteen in the tales, orphaned and alone in the world when her path crosses with the Green Man, who is, believe it or not, not the first green man she has encountered/5(18).

“Few characters in western history have been more elusive than Martha Jane Canary/Calamity Jane. In this book, Richard W. Etulain has doggedly tracked her down and told her story, and that of her evolving myth, better than anyone else.

He reminds us, too, that her mysteries remain, which of course is part of her enduring appeal.”. James Reyne "Calamity Jane": The shutters'd all be down But I'd shut 'em down anyhow Like a bat outa hell, well I landed Then I got whipped Low Hanging Fruit.
