There were cowboys and Indians, sharp shooters including the famed Annie Oakley, hundreds of horses, buffalo, elk and donkeys, with more than 200 cast members, all moving about in a sweeping western landscape of mountains and plains. It would go on to dazzle crowds in London, Paris, Rome and Barcelona, cementing the legend of the Wild West in the minds of people around the globe. Behind the extravaganza was one man -- a meagre plainsman turned international celebrity and frontier hero, whose meteoric rise to fame was made possible only by his genius. His name was William Cody, better known to the world as Buffalo Bill.
