The musical Annie Get Your Gun is loosely based on the life of American sharpshooter Annie Oakley (1860-1926). It was songwriter Jerome Kern who was originally tasked with the job of writing the music for the stage production. The project was however passed to Irving Berlin after Kern unexpectedly died. In 1946, the show opened to glowing reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. A few years later Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) adapted the show for the big-screen. The film version starred actress Betty Hutton and became one of the most successful musical-movies of the 1950s. A decade later, it was Doris’s turn to record a new version of this classic score with her Columbia Records stable mate Robert Goulet. The two singers laid there vocals separately with Doris completing her contribution for the project on the 8 October 1962. The orchestra was most probably overdubbed in New York.
A digitally re-mastered version of the song is also available from the 2003 Doris Day compilation album ’25 Movie Greats’ which I compiled and wrote liner notes for Columbia/Sony Music UK. I am proud that after 14 years this collecton is still selling and available to buy! The album combines Doris’s own mega-hits “It’s Magic” (from ‘Romance on the High Seas’), “Secret Love” (from ‘Calamity Jane’) “Move Over Darling” with her renditions of songs from other famous films.
