Lights! Camera! Annie!

The “Little Sure Shot” of the “Wild West,”an exhibition of rifle shooting at glass balls, etc.
The title is almost longer than the film itself! This short film (only about 21 seconds long) of Annie Oakley and Frank Butler was filmed on November 1, 1894 in Thomas Edison’s Black Maria studio by cameraman William Heise. It's thought to be the 11th motion picture ever filmed!

Note: No need to adjust your volume - there was no sound recorded in early Kinetoscope films.

Annie Get Your Gun runs Friday, September 20 through Sunday, October 13. We've got some tricks up our sleeves, too!  Come and see!
