Doris Day is at her best as the roughest, toughest, rootin’-tootin’ gal of the Wild West, riding, roping and shooting her way through a jamboree of action and hit songs. Howard Keel is her on-again, off-again paramour Wild Bill Hickok, who only begins to realize his feelings for her when she makes a stab at being more “feminine.”
