Video – The Windy City from Calamity Jane (1953)

Calamity Jane (Doris Day) sings “The Windy City” to her comrades upon her return from Chicago, where she had gone to entice the actress Adelaide Adams to perform at the local theatre.

It’s a beautiful number that reveals both her pride for Deadwood City and its people, as well as how sheltered she has been in the comfort of her little town. Coming down from a realisation of how her masculine behaviour is perceived by other people, and how other women act and behave in other places, she may also be trying to make a defensive claim about who and what she is.
