Did You Know?

The songs "Dumb Dog," "Sandy," "Let's Go To The Movies," "We Got Annie," and "Sign" were written expressly for the film. The songs from the original play that were dropped were "NYC", "We'd Like To Thank You, Herbert Hoover", "You Won't Be An Orphan For Long," "Annie," and "A New Deal For Christmas". The last four songs are not in either the film or TV adaptations.See more »
Anachronisms: During "You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile", one orphan uses a liquor bottle as a microphone, then carelessly throws it over her shoulder. It obviously falls to the floor, but doesn't shatter. Polyethylene, which is used to make most plastic bottles, was invented in 1933, and couldn't be produced in mass quantities until 1936.See more »

The best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 20 May 2001
Author: Bob-785 from Darlington, England


The very first time I watched this film, I was hooked. God only knows how many times I have seen it since. And every time I have cried at the bit where Rooster, Lily and Miss Hannigan kidnap her from Daddy Warbucks.

Carol Burnett, Tim Curry and Albert Finney are all excellent. As is Aileen Quinn as little orphan Annie. In fact the entire cast are brilliant. Annie is by far one of the best films I have ever seen. One of my favourite parts is the bit where they come in from the movies and Grace and Daddy Warbucks put Annie to bed while she's sleeping. And another fave is when all the kids from the orphanage go looking for Daddy Warbucks' house because they know what Rooster, Lily and Miss Hannigan are up to. Absolute brilliance. One thing I have to say is never, never, never, never watch the sequel. It is complete rubbish!!
