Doris Day stars as a tomboy in excelsis and sings 'Secret Love' in a lively riposte to MGM’s Annie Get Your Gun.
Dressed head-to-toe in fringed buckskin, Doris Day is tomboy in excelsis as sharp-shootin’ ‘Calam’ in this riposte to MGM’s Annie Get Your Gun. Having trained as a dancer, Day leaps about with infectious abandon in this boisterous musical boasting a terrific score including ‘The Deadwood Stage’ and the Oscar-winning ‘Secret Love’. It remains a touchstone lesbian and gay movie, not least for ‘A Woman’s Touch’ in which Doris gets lessons in homemaking and goes from butch to femme in exactly three minutes and 47 seconds.
