Don’t watch this movie if you’re looking for facts. Definitely a Hollywood version of the lives of Wild Bill, Buffalo Bill & Calamity Jane. Based on what I’ve read, I wouldn’t believe very much of this movie.
It made a good story though, and the cast was excellent.

Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur make such a great couple. Complete opposites as Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Wild Bill Cody is also brought into the story. Much of the movie seems based on the real life of Wild Bill Hickok. It makes the movie all the more fascinating to feel apart of the history of the old West. I will remember "The Plainsman" for a long time to come!
