There are those who consider Texan Meets Calamity Jane as one of the worst westerns ever made. It isn't really, but neither is it one of the best. Evelyn Ankers stars as a highly glamorized Calamity Jane, while James Ellison is the Texan of the title, a tenderfoot lawyer named Gordon Hastings. When Calamity's legal gambling operation in South Dakota falls prey to criminal elements, Hastings travels westward to help her out. At first, she's a much better shot than he, but this will change with time. Though released by Columbia, Texan Meets Calamity Jane has all the earmarks of a low-budget independent product.
