A Rousing, Sure-Fire Comedy.
Annie Oakley, the best shot around, manages to support her family by selling the game she hunts. When she's discovered by Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. The rousing, sure-fire finale really hits the mark in a testament to the power of female ingenuity. Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin. Original book by Herbert and Dorothy Fields. Revised by Peter Stone
