    Girls with Guns
    Women in Westerns generally fall into two predictable categories: good girls and good-time girls. But give them a gun and both become a lot more interesting! Although songwriter Irving Berlin famously asserted, “You Can’t Get a Man with a Gun,” as seen in these lively female firearm yarns, Hollywood seemed to believe otherwise. Film historian Elizabeth Anthony, Reel Classics President, provides introductions and commentary.

    Annie Oakley (1935)
    In this big-budget biopic, a young Barbara Stanwyck plays the famous female sharpshooter who gained worldwide fame in the late 19th century for her marksmanship and mythology. Co-starring Preston Foster and Melvyn Douglas, this rather urban Western provides an interesting look at the Wild West shows that captured imaginations in the decades before Western movies came along. 90 minutes. Ages 8+.
