A Different Valentines: Annie Oakley

Wanna show your clock-stopping hottie that you’re in tune with women on Valentines Day? That you understand and appreciate how she can be both feminine and breadwinning?

Then check out Films on the Hill showing of Annie Oakley, the 1935 tale of the sharpshooter from the Ozarks who joins Buffalo Bill’s legendary wild west show, becoming its main attraction.

If she questions the suggestion, recite this quote from Barbara Stanwyck, who starred as Ms. Okaley:

“Modern women could learn a great deal from Annie Oakley. She was a woman of all ages, deeply feminine in spite of her shooting ability–which she developed to support her family.”
