ANNIE GET YOUR GUN - MARY MARTIN - JOHN RAITT - 1957
Annie Get Your Gun starring Mary Martin and John Raitt. “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better,” “They Say that Falling in Love is Wonderful,” and “You Can’t Get a Man with a Gun” are among the timeless standards in this beloved Broadway musical by Irving Berlin. Reta Shaw (the housemaid in “Mary Poppins” and “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir”) and Luke Halpin (Sandy on “Flipper”) round out the exceptional cast. The New York Herald Tribune called this live 1957 telecast “a joyous event.... From beginning to end, the TV screen abounded in charm and warmth and, best of all, Irving Berlin’s beguiling melodies.” B&W, Mono, 105 minutes.
