Cert:U Year: 1953 Length:101mins
Country:USA
Relaxed Dementia Friendly Screening

Thigh-slappin', sarsaparilla-swiggin', sharp-shootin' Calamity Jane is a woman in a man's world, fitting in the only way she can - by being one of them. As driver of the Deadwood stagecoach, she fearlessly fights off countless Indian ambushes to bring the frontier town its provisions.

Back at the bar, she joins the "mangy pack of dirt trashin' beetles" at the Golden Garter theatre for a drink and recounts tall tales of her daily travails. The only man tougher than her in these parts is the charming but notorious Wild Bill Hickok. Her only feminine weakness is her secret love for Lt Gilmartin.

One of Doris Day's most famous performances with a score packed with Oscar-winning songs, this is a film to take you back in time.

This screening is the first in a programme of dementia friendly film screenings in 2016 funded by Film Hub North and Cumbria Community Foundation.
