Movie Info

This highly fictionalized biopic of legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley stars Barbara Stanwyck as "Little Sure Shot" Annie. Coming down from the hills of Ohio, Annie rises to fame with Buffalo Bill's (Moroni Olsen) Wild West Show. Her success as a performer is counterpointed by her stormy romance with fellow performer Toby Foster (Preston S. Foster), whose reputation as the World's Great Marksman is shot to holes by Annie's accomplishments. Walking out on Annie and the show, Toby loses himself

Audience Reviews for Annie Oakley

A largely fictional but very enjoyable version of the Annie Oakley story. For all of its historical inaccuracies and unfortunate stereotyping it is hugely entertaining, thanks mainly to Barbara Stanwyck's energetic and likable performance. I was actually quite surprised by the level of acting, expecting over the top performances and unnecessary theatrics. The scene in which Annie gets shot in the arm was handled brilliantly, I can't help but think a modern day telling of this part of the story would be somewhat milked and overcooked.

this is a lot of fun if not exactly historically accurate or politically correct. authentic reproduction of buffalo bill's wild west show doesn't hurt any

Fiction about Annie Oakley is given some substance by Barbara Stanwyck who seems to be enjoying herself. If you're looking for her real story though go elsewhere.
