Annie Oakley needs to be re-made


Out of curiosity I looked into Annie Oakley's bio after viewing this film. I was blown away!!! The true story is extremely fascinating. And I was very surprised that many of the facts in the musical are actually true - the real Sitting Bull really adopted the real Annie, for instance.
I think this could be re-made as a successful, factual biographical film - maybe Demi Moore as Annie? She looks like her & has played "tomboys".

That would be a completely different film, not a remake of "Annie Get Your Gun". Actually, I think that both the more fantasty musical comedy approach and the "true to life" approach have merit.

Annie Oakley's life would make an interesting movie, if they would do it without any woke bias, but that would be impossible today. Unfortunately, it would be a diatribe about feminism, racism, the patriarchy, etc., etc., and would end up, in a different way, as unrealistic as the musical version but without the entertainment value.
