Betty Hutton replaced an ailing Judy Garland and made the part of Annie her own with an assist from Howard Keel (making his movie debut) as the handsome sharpshooter Frank Butler.

Walt Disney’s rambunctious Donald Duck battles his nephew’s Huey, Dewey and Louie in the big screen Technicolor cartoon Straight Shooters (1947).
