Synopsis:

Saturday, April 26, 2008 at 2:00 P.M. & 8:00 P.M.

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
M-G-M 1950 in Technicolor!

This wide screen, Technicolor musical is a bigger than life story of the bigger than life straight shooter, Annie Oakley.

Produced by Charles Rosher and directed by George Sidney.

Nominated for 4 Oscars®, it won for Best Musical Scoring. Writer Sidney Sheldon won a Writers Guild award for Best Written American Musical.

Betty Hutton, Howard Keel, J. Carrol Naish and Keenan Wynn star and sing Irving Berlin songs that have become Broadway standards including:

Anything You Can Do,
The Girl That I Marry,
Got The Sun In The Morning,
Doin' What Comes Naturally, and
There's No Business Like Show Business.

A rollicking, big budget, pull out all the stops musical from the heyday of the genre at M-G-M.

One of the finest examples of the 3-Strip Technicolor process, all theatrical prints were pulled from circulation in 1973 due to an unresolved rights dispute. MILES KREUGER, author and President of The Institute of the American Musical will host the 8 pm screening and detail the campaign to bring this classic back to the big screen.

Walt Disney’s rambunctious Donald Duck battles his nephew’s Huey, Dewey and Louie in the big screen Technicolor cartoon Straight Shooters (1947).
