Showbiz Crumography: Garland & 'Annie Get Your Gun'

In costume as Annie Oakley, Judy Garland is entertained off camera by fellow cast member Keenan Wynn. After recording her songs for the movie and shooting a handful of musical sequences, Garland was fired (due to illness, absences, tardies), and replaced by Betty Hutton. Despite all its rocky production challenges, including the death of Frank Morgan as Buffalo Bill, "Annie Get Your Gun" was a 1950 box office hit. [Louis Calhern replaced Morgan.]
Enjoy this rare footage of Judy Garland singing "Doin' What Comes Naturally" from Annie Get Your Gun:
