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.

In the first shooting match scene between Annie and Frank, electric transmission lines can clearly be seen in the background. Historically, this match took place in Cincinnati in 1881. The first electrical transmission grid was not erected until 1886 in Barrington, MA. See more »

The film depicts true-life people, including Annie Oakley, Frank Butler, Buffalo Bill, Pawnee Bill, and Sitting Bull, and is loosely based on true events. However, the opening credits claim that all characters are fictional and and any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental. See more »
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.
