Summary
One summer afternoon in 1922, a petite, elegant woman faced a packed arena on Long Island for what would be her last big shooting exhibition. Even at age 62, Annie Oakley never missed. She was one of the greatest sharpshooters of all time, thrilling crowds across America and Europe, feted by princes and presidents -- the first American woman ever to become a superstar. Oakley's beginnings were more than humble--her childhood horrific--but she had built a career doing what she loved while excelling in a man's world. This film examines how a mistreated, half-starved little girl from Ohio became an icon of the American West
