The heroine is a rough and tumble backwoods girl who is the star of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and handy with a rifle. We first meet up with her at Wilson House, a summer hotel on the outskirts of Cincinnati, Ohio. She betrays that she is an uncultivated female who only knows to do that which comes naturally to her (Doin' What Comes Natur'lly). She soon meets up with Frank Butler of Pawnee Bill's Show. He is a big, sentimental fellow who is attracted only to sweet and demure girls (The Girl That I Marry). Annie finds Frank appealing, but she lacks the gift of getting men to become interested in her (You Can't Get a Man With a Gun). But they have one thing in common, show business, and with Buffalo Bill they proceed to sing its praises (There's No Business Like Show Business). Six weeks have passed. The scene shifts to a Pullman car of an Overland train speeding to Minneapolis. By now Frank and Annie have begun to manifest an interest in this thing called love.
