Here's a little Youtube clip I found, which features Calamity Jane (Doris Day) and Katie Brown (Allyn Ann McLerie). I like how innocently aggressive the boyish Jane, in her ignorance, gets with the tight-laced showgirl: a sharp clash of butch and femme, I'd say. I get an enticing sense of how vulnerable Katie might be if Jane were to let go of herself. (Yeah, I know she's supposed to fall in love with a guy in that movie, but I think that was a mistake.)

Doris was the ultimate adult tomboy in films, and CALAMITY JANE pushed this to the max. She's also a convincing baseball babe/grease monkey in ON MOONLIGHT BAY. Speaking of sexy toms, thanks for joining my TOMBOY FOREVER! WITH BETSY RUSSELL Yahoo club. Love to hear what you might have in store for my haughty heroine!
