Deadwood, South Dakota, is largely the abode of men, but frontier scout Calamity Jane is as hard-riding, boastful and handy with a gun as any. Jane’s wild promises set her off in search of a beautiful singer to grace the stage at the Golden Garter saloon, but her triumphant return to town might be tainted when she inadvertently introduces a feminine rival to the man she loves.
