Synopsis
The Annie Oakley show was a Western TV series revolving around the famous Ohio frontierswoman known for her incredible sharpshooting skills. Born in the mid-1800s to a farming family, the real Phoebe Ann Oakley Mozee—known later as Annie Oakley—first began hunting game at age nine to provide food for her family. By sixteen, Annie was a dead shot, and she became so well known for her shooting skills that Prince Wilhelm of Germany once invited her to shoot a lit cigarette from his lips!

On the series, Annie (Gail Davis), with her six-shooter, her younger brother Tagg Oakley (Jimmy Hawkings), and Deputy sheriff Craig (Brad Johnson), maintained law and order in the frontier town of Diablo, protecting it frm mischief-making outlaws and vagabond bandits.

Like the historical Annie Oakley, the "Little Miss Sure Shot" of the TV series (played by Gail Davis) helped raise the bar for women. The show was the first in its class because it featured a female lead in a genre that never had before. The series, produced by Western superstar Gene Autry, was a popular favorite in the mid-'50s and ran from January 1954 to late February 1957.
