Doris Day - Calamity Jane and The Pajama Game

This release includes two film soundtracks which Doris Day starred in - Calamity Jane and The Pajama Game.

Calamity Jane is a "Wild West"-themed film musical released in 1953. It is loosely based on the life of Wild West heroine Calamity Jane and explores an alleged romance between Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok in the American Old West. The film starred Doris Day as the title character and Howard Keel as Hickok. It was devised by Warner Brothers in response to the success of Annie Get Your Gun.

The Pajama Game is a 1957 musical film based on the stage musical of the same name. The principal cast of the Broadway musical repeated their roles for the movie, with the exception of Janis Paige, who was replaced by Doris Day. Workers at a pajama factory demand a seven-and-a-half cent raise, but things get derailed when the woman leading their cause falls in love with the factory superintendent.
