Plot Summary
Calamity Jane (Jane Russell) is working undercover for the U.S. government, trying to capture a gunrunner named Terris (Robert Armstrong) in exchange for a pardon for her previous misdoings. But when Jane's partner is killed, she takes up with bumbling dentist "Painless" Peter Potter (Bob Hope) and passes him off as a gifted gunslinger.
