  Calamity Jane Wednesday 28 August 2002  
It's nearly 50 years since Doris Day played one of her best loved roles, Calamity Jane, the wild west tom boy.

Calamity Jane did exist, although the film is a highly fictionalised account of her life. In the movie the gun toting Indian scout discovers her softer feminine side in a quest to try and get her man.
Toyah Wilcox, who is about to start a nationwide theatre tour of the musical playing Calamity and lecturer in Film Studies at Warwick University, Tamar Jeffers join Jenni to discuss the appeal of playing this wild woman of the west.
