Annie Oakley is a Western television series that fictionalizes the life
of the famous
Annie Oakley. (Except for depicting the protagonist
as a phenomenal
sharpshooter of the period, the program entirely
ignores the facts of the historical Oakley’s life.) Featuring actress
Gail Davis in the title role, the weekly program ran from January
1954 to February 1957 in
syndication. A total of 81 black-and-white
episodes were produced, with each installment running 25 minutes
in length.
ABC aired daytime reruns of the series on Saturdays and
Sundays from 1959 to 1960 and then again from 1964 to 1965.

divorced shortly afterward.

opened  in theaters across the United States. Set in
California
in the summer of 1962, American Graffiti was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Picture, and
helped launch the big-screen careers of Richard Dreyfuss and
Harrison Ford, as well as the former child actor and future Oscar-
winning filmmaker Ron Howard. The film’s success enabled
Lucas to get his next movie made, the mega-hit Star Wars (1977).
