Annie Oakley was a popular folk character for young girls, being reputed to be as wild and sharpshooting as her male gunslinger counterparts. Some collectors think this game was inspired by the Annie Oakley TV series, but that didn't appear until four years later in 1954.
Note: There was a different Annie Oakley boardgame, with completely different artwork, board, and game play, published in 1965 by Game Gems.
