The opening sequence of this wonderful musical is pure pleasure, as Doris Day rides the Deadwood stage across the screen and into our hearts … The specially commissioned score is a treat, but the strength of the movie is Day, who gives a marvellous musical comedy performance in her finest role, creating a warm, robust yet tender character … This is a true delight that repays many viewings.  Tony Sloman, Radio Times
