When Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show visits Cincinnati, Frank Butler (Doug Fischer), the show’s star, challenges anyone in town to a shooting match. He offers the local hotel owner (Jacob Duncan) a $100 side bet. Annie Oakley (Caralie Greven) enters and shoots a bird off Dolly Tate’s (Haley Dugger) hat. The hotel owner learns Annie is a brilliant shot and enters her in the shooting match against Frank.
While Annie waits for the match to start, she meets Frank and falls instantly in love with him, not knowing he will be her opponent. At the shooting match, Annie wins and Buffalo Bill (James Kline) and Show Manager Charlie Davenport (Johnny Gonzales) invite Annie to join the Wild West Show. Annie agrees because she is in love with Frank.
While working together, Frank becomes enamored with the plain-spoken, honest, Annie. When Buffalo Bill and Charlie discover that a rival show will be playing in the next town, they ask Annie to do a special shooting trick to draw business away from Pawnee Bill (Jonathan Spear). Annie agrees because the trick will surprise Frank.
Frank plans to propose to Annie, but when Annie performs her trick and becomes a star, Chief Sitting Bull (Ed Boyle) adopts her into the Sioux tribe. Hurt and angry, Frank walks out on Annie and the show, joining the competition.
Come to the show to find out what happens next and who wins the final shooting duel between Annie and Frank.
