"I found this bio to be inspiring! Years ago, my husband and I used to take rifles down to the irrigation pond on his grandfather's farm and shoot at tin cans until they sank. Great fun! I've loved Annie Oakley since I was a child. This bio reminded me of why. Time to pick up my rifle again and practice target shooting."
Annie Oakley - Crackshot in Petticoats
Janice L. Martin | Papillion, NE USA | 07/31/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is a most interesting DVD. I never really understood who Annie Oakley was or how she became famous, and most especially what she looked like. This DVD shows you actual photos and tells the real life story of Annie Oakley. Especially interesting is to learn of her magnificient skills with guns and the fact that she married someone who had similar skills. It also tells of their tenure with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. I enjoyed it very much and am glad to have it in my collection of biographies of people from the Old West."
Pop-cultural time capsule

"This DVD is a dandy, full of great photography of the post-Civil War belle epoch era that Annie Oakley inhabited as America's first female pop-cultural superstar, right on down to perhaps the greatest treasure of all; experimental Edison film clips that give us little fleeting glimpses of the actual Annie in action. Considering what a huge star and personality Annie was, it is amazing how little known and understood she is today, with what little the average American does know about her being complete and total bunk. The fact is, Annie was a fascinating character from a fascinating period of American history, and this film does a highly workmanlike job of telling her story."
