Another Closet Canadian Production, 23 April 2006
Author: animal_8_5 from Dundalk, Canada

Minerva Urecal played a tough, but lovable Annie in this cheap, but well-made show. The last episodes I saw were so ripped up, its a wonder you could make sense of the story. Would've presented better with a better quality print, so will probably never see light on DVD. So generic was this series, most viewers never knew it was filmed entirely in Canada.

Made during a busy time for syndicated Canadian TV series' such as "Last Of The Mohicans," "Cannonball," "The Littlest Hobo" (1st series, not the version made in the 1970s) and "B" films "Flaming Frontiers" and "Wolf Dog." I heard from a child extra in "Annie" that Walter Sande was a great practical joker and talented at sleight-of-hand, which entertained cast and crew alike during downtime.

The reason the series was filmed in Canada was that labor and resources were cheaper and marketing possibilities wider. Inexplicably, the bonanza ended by 1960. It took decades for the Canadian film industry to recover, but recover it did, thanks largely to productions like "Tugboat Annie."
