This is a mixed bag of episodes but Annie Oakley fans should get it for the pilot episode "Bull's Eye" from 1952. In the pilot, Gail Davis looks and acts younger, less tough (she prays at one point), and has an outrageous hairdo worthy of Cindy from the Brady Bunch. Also, a different actor plays Annie's brother Tagg. Finally we get to see where the opening credit scene of Annie sneaking through the window comes from. The picture in the pilot is a little blurry but watchable. "Annie Makes a Marriage" is from the first season (1954), and has a light vertical line, otherwise the picture is decent, though like the pilot, it is missing the full ending credits. "Dilemma at Diablo" (1956) has poor picture quality and is just barely watchable. In "Treasure Map", also from 1956, which is in decent condition, we get to see several recognizable actors, including Lane Bradford, House Peters Jr., Glenn Strange, and a very young Shelley Fabares. This episode also has scenic location shots of Vasquez Rocks in Los Angeles County with yuccas in full bloom.
