The magically long-haired Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but now that a runaway thief has stumbled upon her, she is about to discover the world for the first time, and who she really is.
In the depths of the 1930's, Annie is a fiery young orphan girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan. Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy munitions industrialist, Oliver Warbucks. Quickly, she charms the hearts of the household staff and even the seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks cannot help but learn to love this wonderful girl. He decides to help Annie find her long lost parents by offering a reward if they would come to him and prove their identity. However, Miss Hannigan, her evil brother, Rooster, and a female accomplice, plan to impersonate those people to get the reward for themselves which put Annie in great danger. Written by

In the play, it was Grace Farrell who brought the adoption papers to the orphanage. After the film script had Warbucks do this, Carol Burnett and Albert Finney lobbied the songwriters for a song to sing together and to flesh out the only meeting between Warbucks and Miss Hannigan. Their duet, "Sign," was written in two days. See more »

One of the old classics. A nice movie about a little girl, trying to find her parents and on her way she finds something even better. But before the happy ending she has to fight a battle against evil. This is a movie that you should at least know about. The songs are cute, and the performance excellent. I have never seen so young children dance and sing like that. Unbelievable. My favorite scene is "A Hard Knock Life". The dancing and the singing is absolutely perfect. But when you have seen the movie once, you can definitely wait some years to see it again. The songs though are worth listening to, and if you listen to them a lot, you may be able to sing along in the bathtub!
