Howard Keel played Annie's love interest in Annie Get Your Gun. Oakley's boyfriend was real life sharpshooter Frank Butler. The studios tapped Hollywood's favorite singing cowboy Keel again to play Wild Bill Hickox, Calamity Jane's real life beau in the Annie Get Your Gun ripoff, Calamity Jane, which was released in 1953.
