What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Annie Get Your Gun is a 1950 musical about Annie Oakley. Viewed through the lens of the 21st century, the movie's depictions of Native Americans are extraordinarily dated at best and outright racist at worst -- Native Americans are depicted as ignorant savages who frivolously spend money on things like eclairs and speak broken English, and make Annie an honorary Native American during a cringeworthy song called "I'm an Indian, Too." Furthermore, the movie's resolution is extremely dated: Annie is told that if she wants to be with Frank, she must deliberately lose the climactic shooting contest so Frank's male ego isn't crushed, and he can go on being a man, and Annie can do more "feminine" duties. However, there are some classic Irving Berlin songs in this movie, such as "There's No Business Like Show Business" and "Anything I Can Do (I Can Do Better)." Families who watch this film may want to use it to encourage their kids to explore the true history of the West by reading books and watching other historical fiction.
