Annie Oakley

Synopsis: 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.

Production: RKO Radio Pictures

that might make it interesting for you.

How about a little side bet of $100

to make it more interesting?

$100, eh? No, I don't think

that would interest me,

but $200 should do it.

Mac, it's a bet.

But you'll have to see my new boss here

to arrange the details.

Well, would tomorrow morning

at the Gun Club suit you, gentlemen?

It's a go. Let's have a drink on it.

Oscar, set them up, on the house.

- On the house.

- On the house!

Well, Mac...

Beers all around.

And make mine a short one.

Make mine a champagne cocktail.

- I'll take champagne, too.

- Make mine champagne, too.

Make mine champagne.

All right, Oscar,

I'll have a champagne cocktail.

Mac, if I hadn't been here to see this,

I wouldn't have believed it.

Put it back. I've lost my thirst.

What's the matter, Mac?

Are you mourning?

Yeah, for his $200.

- Oh, that's not for ladies.

- Oh, I'm no lady.

Pardon me, miss, this is a saloon.

Oh, how cozy.

I've lived for 60 years

and that's the first time

I ever saw a woman going into a saloon.

The next thing you know,

they will be smoking cigarettes.

Talk sense, man, talk sense.

- Here's to Toby Walker.

- Here's to Toby Walker!

Well, gentlemen, I hardly know what to...

Hello, honey. Getting your hair curled?

What's the matter? Don't I get introduced?

Allow me, gents.

The great Toby Walker and Company.

I nearly forgot what time it is.

They're probably yelling for me

at the theater. I...

Come on, get out of here.

Seems there's nothing sacred anymore.

In all my born days

I've never seen such gall.

What are you trying to do, make a jackass

out of me in front of my public?

- Honey.

- Don't honey me. You're too dang fresh.

Toby Walker, you're supposed to be

a sharpshooter,

and you can't even see a willing gal
