This is the movie I fell in love with Doris Day as a kid watching this movie on a winter day! Of course as after I grew up and had learned the true history of what actually happened in the Black Hills, it made me realize how easy it was to dupe kids from print and movies. But when I watched this movie after many years I remembered why I fell in love with Miss Day!

This is a timeless classic musical that will have you singing for beginning to end. A good mix of comedy, musical, and a little historic documentary.
