A hilarious comedy, it nevertheless has many tender moments and some very famous numbers, including “Secret Love”“Black Hills Of Dakota”,“Deadwood Stage” and “Windy City”.

‘Calam’ dresses like a man, totes a gun and protects the Deadwood City stagecoach.  Well-meaning, but disaster-prone, she tries to help the local saloon proprietor out of a jam (when he mistakenly hires male actor Francis Fryer thinking he is Frances Fryer a female performer) by promising to fetch Adelaide Adams a music-hall star from Chicago.

In Chicago Calamity mistakes Adelaide’s maid, Katie Brown, for the actress and hauls her back to Deadwood to perform. On stage Katie is greeted warmly, but breaks down and confesses that she is not the famous star. Calamity once more has to restore order and persuades the audience to give Katie a chance. They do, and she wins the heart of every male in town including Calamity’s dashing love hope, Lt. Danny Gilmartin. Calamity reluctantly overcomes her jealousy over losing Danny and discovers another side to Wild Bill Hickock.
