Annie Get Your...Huh?

Jess and I just saw the 1950 movie musical Annie Get Your Gun, based on the 1946 stage musical of the same name.

Great Irving Berlin songs, especially the comedic duet "Anything You Can Do."

But...WTF? What the hell kind of ending was that?

I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it. To those who have, I ask again: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

I can see the reasoning from a historic context, from the values of the time.

But it was still a crappy-ass ending.


NOTE: If you're interested in how Annie's life really progressed, PBS has a nice timeline.
