Storyline

A story very loosely based on the love story of Annie Oakley and Frank Butler who meet at a shooting match. Fabulous music although the lead characters have virtually nothing to do with the actual historical figures. Annie joins Frank Butler in Col. Cody's Wild West Show. They tour the world performing before Royalty as well as the public at large.

Trivia

Bernadette Peters was the last person to originate the role of Annie in a Broadway revival, for which she won a Tony award. This production turned out to be the longest running production of the show ever. Peters said in a NY interview she had wanted to play this role for years, given the bad press that surrounded the Betty Hutton movie version from the very beginning. (This included the loss of Frank Morgan, the releasing of Judy Garland and Busby Berkley, and the record-breaking royalty payments resulting from not hiring any of the New York production performers, including the refusal to work with Ethel Merman. Merman's own failed attempt to revive the show on Broadway, where she then played Annie more than 20 years older than in her first production, led certain NY producers to avoid revivals of the show for some time.)

Goofs

Right before the song "You Can't Get a Man With a Gun", Annie sits down on a bench and opens her mouth wide for her first note; then in a closer shot she opens her mouth wide again, this time in sync with first note. See more »

A Classic Musical Gets the MGM Treatment
3 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

1950's ANNIE GET YOUR GUN was originally planned to star Judy Garland in the title role; however Garland had just finished a stint in rehab and doctors recommended a year off. Instead she was given two weeks off and was assigned to report to wardrobe tests for the film. She even filmed a few scenes and a couple of musical numbers (which are included on the DVD), but Garland looks worn and haggard and she clearly was in no shape, physically or emotionally to work, so she was replaced by that bundle of bombastic( an adjective which I think the actress has the patent on)energy, Betty Hutton, who makes the most of this role and the classic Irving Berlin score (not Rodgers and Hammerstein as a previous poster stated). I have to admit I wouldn't have minded hearing Garland's interpretation of "I've Got the Sun in the Morning" or "They Say that Falling in Love" (Hutton's weakest moment) but for the most part Hutton shines as Annie and gets solid support from handsome Howard Keel as Frank Butler. Their duet "Anything you can do" is another highlight. A first rate stage musical gets first rate screen treatment from the MGM dream factory.
