In 1949, Judy Garland was cast in the role of Annie Oakley in the film adaptation of the Irving Berlin musical Annie Get Your Gun. She pre-recorded the score with the rest of the cast and began filming, but was fired from the project before it was completed. Betty Hutton replaced her in the finished film. Nevertheless, the Garland version has surfaced on various recordings over the years, some of dubious legality. The Sound/Stage LP was released by the Judy Garland fan club.
