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.

Great Movie
7 August 1999 | by Celia-2See all my reviews

I think this was one of the best films ever made and would love to be able to buy it on video. I adore Howard Keel and I think the part was made for Betty Hutton. It is a shame generations are missing out on this movie.
