This is to announce the publication of my new eBook Calamity Jane in the Movies, an essay that began as several blog posts on my Another Old Movie Blog. The book is available from Amazon here. It is to be the first in a series of short books examining Hollywood's treatment on historical subjects, as well as the current events of the era in which the films were made.
Calamity Jane, a real-life historical figure in the American Old West gets a "reel" life in Hollywood's varied, entertaining, and inaccurate portrayals. Fifty-seven pages, includes several historical photos of Calamity Jane, as well as movie stills and lobby card images. The book is currently priced at $1.99, but can be borrowed free for Kindle Prime subscribers.
