Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 612 ratings.
Good family entertainment, a nice blend of action, mystery, and humor. I was a bit surprised that Annie more often uses her mental sleuthing skills rather than the sharpshooting the character is famous for (though you still get to see her shoot or do tricks on occasion). Gail Davis is great as Annie! Enjoyed seeing the scenic Vasquez Rocks, (near where I live) in one of the episodes.
The video quality is very watchable, though not perfect. Sometimes you can see the dirt around the frame, presumably from the film machine used for the transfer. Also the episode "Indian Justice" (not written by Sam Peckinpah), is wrongly identified as "End of a Gun" due to the splicing in of a title sequence from a totally different western show. This episode has a couple of other splices and may be missing about a minute. The other episodes run for at least 25 minutes and seem to be complete. Note: episodes are from various seasons and not in broadcast order.
