Storyline

In a sharpshooting match, the manager of a Cincinnati hotel bets on the fellow who's been supplying the hotel with quail...who turns out to be young Annie Oakley. Result: Annie is hired for Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show (which is faithfully re-enacted in the film). She's tutored in showmanship by champ Toby Walker. But when Annie wins top billing, professional rivalry conflicts with their growing personal attachment, leading to misunderstanding and separation.

Goofs

In the movie, during the European tour, Annie shoots a cigarette out of the mouth of Crown Prince Wilhelm of Germany (later to become Germany's Kaiser). There was such an incident, but Annie didn't shoot the cigarette out of Wilhelm's mouth due to the danger but shot it out of his hand instead. During WWI Annie, reminisced that if she could do it over she'd let him put it in his mouth and then miss. See more »

Stanwyck Good Choice For The Role
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Barbara Stanwyck, as I have mentioned in other reviews, was a tough woman but a likable one, at least with me. I don't normally go for those tough dames but her voice and personality she brought to a lot of roles always attracted me. A case in point was this movie. I doubt if another actress would have made this a better-than-average film, which Stanwyck did.

Preston Foster's character in here, meanwhile, undergoes one of the fastest transformations I've ever seen on film, from arrogant pig to very likable good guy in no time at all. In fact, he turned out to be such a good guy that parts of this film, where "Toby Walker" was wronged, are difficult to watch.

There's a little humor also thrown in this western, mainly involving "Sitting Bull." It's been a long time since I've seen this film but I would definitely watch it again if it came out on DVD.
