Barbara Stanwyck stars in this lively historical fare as the rugged Ozark sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Stanwyck is particularly fine in the opening scenes in which Annie is discovered to be an awkward, thoroughly uncultured and untutored backwoodsian. She joins Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show

and becomes its star marksperson, vying for attention and falling in love with sharpshooter Toby Walker (Preston Foster). The show's manager, played by Melvyn Douglas, is himself hopelessly in love with Annie, but doesn't stand a chance as she goes tenaciously after Walker, getting help from Chief

Thundercloud as Sitting Bull. Thundercloud provides many laughs in his encounters with the white man's world of folding beds and gas lights. The film is elaborately produced with scores of Indians and cowboys making up Cody's legendary show, although the facts are bent a bit for dramatic

effect.
