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.

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
Ah, I was wondering, Mr. MacIvor, if you could help me find some plain sewing.

Mind yuh, the job only calls for sellin' cigars.
