Storyline

Annie Oakley is an incredible shot who was raised 'Doin' What Comes Naturally'. Frank Butler, the star sharpshooter in 'Colonel Buffalo Bill''s show, however, knows full well that's not how 'The Girl That I Marry' must be. Anyway, not at least until he finds that 'My Defences are Down'. Though Annie defiantly says 'Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better', she realizes that 'You Can't Get a Man With a Gun'. The victor at the end is love; as you know, 'It's Wonderful'. After all, 'There's No Business Like Show Business'. Written by Horacio Abeledo <horabe@ipcabe.uba.ar>

Trivia

Betty Hutton said in an interview that the crew at MGM was not very nice to her because they told her they'd rather have Judy Garland in the role. However, at a recent screening of the re-mastered print of the film, the surviving members of the cast and crew praised Hutton's performance highly, and acknowledged her contribution to the film. Hutton was one of the surviving cast members who did not attend that screening. See more »

Goofs

When Annie and Frank have an encounter on the train, the sun is setting. In the next shot, the train is still going in the same direction, but a full moon is in the spot where the sun has set. A full moon is opposite of the sun, hence it would have to be in the eastern sky, not in the west. See more »

Quotes

Annie Oakley: [calling after Frank as he's walking away] Hey, mister...? Don't you like girls?
Frank Butler: [not comprehendeding the question] Well... sure!
Annie Oakley: [realizing it herself] I'm a girl.
Frank Butler: [laughing condescendingly as he walks away] That's fine.

A great film for the whole family.
24 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't know what planet the other reviewer (David Burns) is from, but i guess everyone is entitled to their opinion. This is a GREAT movie musical, with excellent performances. It has endured for a reason. I would rate this in the top 10 best musicals of all time, right up there with Singin' In The Rain, An American In Paris, Gigi, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, The Sound Of Music, Invitation To The Dance, the Astair-Rogers gems. Betty Hutton gives a career defining performance; she is simply wonderful in the title role, with solid performances from the rest of the cast ( Howard Keel, Louis Calhern, Keenan Wynn). The score , by Berlin, Deutsch and Edens, includes memorable songs (There's No Business Like Show Business, Doin' What Comes Naturally, Anything You Can Do ), . The film was the winner of the 1951 Academy Award for best music and scoring. The color photography by Charles Rosher is magnificent. If you like musicals (or just great films), do yourself a favor and get the DVD.
