| Very similar to the musical
More people are more familiar with the stage musical, so if you've seen that version, you'll notice the great similarities between it and this 1935 film. While on tour on Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, young and innocent Barbara Stanwyck gets hooked into a shooting contest with the nation's best, Preston Foster. She gets adopted by the traveling troupe and goes on tour, learning about life and love along the way.

Despite her thick Brooklyn accent, Barbara Stanwyck is totally adorable as the title sharpshooter in Annie Oakley. She's little and packs a punch, which is all that the role requires. It doesn't matter what her accent is-just listen to Ethel Merman! Some of the Wild West show scenes are pretty fun to watch, and it looks like the stunt people had a good time. This version is so similar to the musical, you can actually see the actors pause as they wait for their music cues to start singing! Check this one out if you liked the Betty Hutton version.
