Annie Oakley ★★½

Lowercase western biopic about the famous Quaker girl sharpshooter who lets her rifle do the talking when men discredit her skills based on her sex, and which has a Remington Beals blast of angry #MeToo resonance to it, but is far more interesting in the first half of Oakley hitting bullseyes on male bias than her falling in love with her competition in the second.

Barbara Stanwyck brings good-natured dignity to her defiance and a drive to be the best in the wild west at what she does, far beyond needing to impress those who would put her down. As Buffalo Bill's talent scout and the guy who won't get the girl, Melvyn Douglas lends loveable support.
