Dozens of actors popular at the time also appeared on the program, including Slim Pickens, William Fawcett, Fess Parker, Alan Hale Jr., Denver Pyle, and Lee Van Cleef.
This program presents a fictionalized account of the life of legendary Wild West sharpshooter Annie Oakley, set in the quiet western town of Diablo.
Annie and her little brother, Tagg, made sure that outlaws who moseyed into town kept on going. Often at her side was friend and suitor, Deputy Sheriff Lofty Craig, with whom she often showed off her shooting prowess.
Many of the plotlines involve Annie being forced into the role of sheriff while her uncle was away. Bandits and outlaws, believing the town to be defenseless, would try to make trouble, but they didn't count on facing Annie and her trusty rifle.
