Goofs:
Factual errors: 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 looks great in this semi-biographical pic, 30 May 2010
Author: smatysia (feldene@comcast.net) from Houston

A decent Thirties era melodrama loosely based on the life of Annie Oakley. I looked into Oakley a bit after seeing this film, and her life has been highly fictionalized. Oakley was a bit of a feminist for her day, and that did come through a little bit in the film. (Rational feminism, not the semi-nutty political feminism of recent decades) Barbara Stanwyck did a jam-up job playing the backwoods girl, and looked awesome doing it. (of course) Oakley, for all her talent, was a bit deficient in the hotness factor. But, hey this is a movie.

The film heavily featured Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, and I wonder a bit how close they were to accuracy on that. After all the show was still in living memory when this movie was filmed. No buffalo were shown, although they were alluded to once. I suppose they were very scarce in those days.

Anyway, I liked the film more than I expected to. Check it out.
