old style romantic melodrama
This very loose biography of the famous sharpshooter Annie Oakley plays like a decent 30s romantic melodrama, rather than a western. The connection with the western genre is of course Buffalo Bill's show, who as the actual old west started vanishing gave easterners a taste of it, in the form of a lavish extravaganza.

Barbara Stanwyck is charming as the talented female sharpshooter, and the two gallants who compete for her affection initially seem like they are going to be villains, but both turn out to be decent people.

Apart from the old style romance, the movie gives you a chance to see a reconstruction of what Buffalo Bill's show might have looked like. Judging by the early pictures and films of the actual show that have survived, they did a reasonable job.

Not much of a western, but a pleasant entertainment.
