Annie Oakley DVD 1935 Barbara Stanwyck Western Biography B&W NR
Stars of Annie Oakley: Barbara Stanwyck, Preston Foster, Melvyn Douglas
In a sharpshooting match, the manager of a Cincinnati hotel bets on the fellow who’s been supplying the hotel with quail…who turns out to be young Annie Oakley. Result: Annie is hired for Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show (which is faithfully re-enacted in the film). She’s tutored in showmanship by champ Toby Walker. But when Annie wins top billing, professional rivalry conflicts with their growing personal attachment, leading to misunderstanding and separation.
In real life, Annie Oakley was a bit of a feminist for her day, and that does come through a in the film, but it’s a rational feminism, not the semi-nutty political feminism of recent decades. Barbara Stanwyck did a jam-up job playing the backwoods girl, and looked awesome doing it.
Annie Oakley Trivia: This was Barbara Stanwyck’s first Western movie role.

Note to Buyers
Mayda Mart movies consist of mostly American films made before 1964. These carefully researched films have been considered to be in the public domain in the USA for many years. Why is a film in the public domain? Briefly, films fall into the public domain because they were never properly registered with the Library of Congress in the first place or were not renewed as required by the prevailing copyright laws at the time. This movie has been researched and found to be in the public domain in the U.S. because the copyright has either expired and is no longer valid or the film was not copyrighted at all. Researched first with the United States Copyright Office Public Catalog as well as other public domain resources.
