      Back in Deadwood, Calamity is made a fool of when the fraud is discovered. However Katy is accepted by the men, moves in with Calamity, and tries to make her more womanly.
       But problems arise because Calamity is in love with her friend Danny, who is in love with Katy. Calam's friend, Wild Bill Hickok (Howard Keel) is in love with Katy too, and this leads to a few unpleasant incidents as spoilt short-tempered Calam has to figure out that she can't tell anyone who to love, and at the same time discovers her own true love.
