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

The stage version of Annie ends at Christmas. The film changed it to the 4th of July because it was shot during the summer, and getting enough fake snow to cover the grounds of the New York mansion was far too expensive. See more »

How can you not love this movie? It has wonderful, catchy songs, it's a clean movie, a great storyline, and wonderful actors and actresses! What more could you ask for?! It's better than most movies today because it actually has a moral and a plot. It's a great family movie. It's one of my favorite movies, next to The Sound of Music. Anybody who doesn't watch this movie is seriously missing out. I'm sure you will like it. It's a lot better than the Disney remake. Sometimes the original, older movies are better than the remakes. And this movie is one of them! If you like musicals, or just want to watch a family movie, this is one that you really should watch.
