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

Writers Dorothy and Herbert Fields and Producers Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II had originally arranged for Jerome Kern to write the musical score. When Kern died suddenly, he was replaced by Irving Berlin. This was the first time that Irving Berlin wrote a score for a show with an existing plot. In his many musical plays and films the songs were written first, then the scripts were written for the situations suggested by the songs. See more »

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 »

I thought this was a great movie!
3 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was full of adventure and romance in a weird way. I love how its a musical. I am auditioning next week for the play Annie Get Your Gun at my school, and seeing the movie really has helped me prepare.Usually the same person gets all the lead parts, but not this time! I'm really confident that I'll do okay, especially because Annie is such an awesome character. I think this is definitely a movie for all! I love how everyone gets a good feeling from listening to people sing. This movie is definitely one of my favorites. Did you know Annie Get Your Gun is a true story? It is! That's another reason why it's great- real life, but not boring!
