Stalwart baritone Howard Keel makes an impressive Hollywood debut as Hutton's leading man.
A loud and gaudy production of a hit play turned into a hit movie.
In this fun musical, Betty Hutton gives perhaps an overenergetic peformance in a part that was intended for Judy Garland before she was fired.
A rootin' tootin' good time.
Colorful, tuneful, brassy musical version of Berlin's hit Broadway show.
The chemistry between Hutton and Keel is delightful and when his full-throttle baritone meets her rich alto in the duets, you'll be bewitched.
Stiff adaptation buoyed by brilliant Berlin score
...it gets an enlivening, high-octane delivery, thanks to Hutton and director George Sidney.
saucy betty, strapping keel, good fun although a reportedly a nightmare to make.
Betty Hutton is amazing as the rather simple-minded but talented Annie Oakley. It's a delightful 1h47min to spend watching this Michigan native spin an Ohio accent -- if you are indeed a fan of the musical genre. if you are not, this film is bad news for you, even though it does give us the story of "the first American female superstar". It does not offer more than a whirl around or two on the plot and apart from it's protagonist there isn't much to discover here, for a modern viewer who has had their dose of high profile musical prodigies like "Chicago' (2002) or "Moulin Rouge" (2001) in the past decade. For those with a taste for the classic though... you'll be rewarded accordingly.
