Storyline

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.

Trivia

The scene featuring "Maybe" was the last one to be shot. It replaced the original opening sequence, which was too long. The reprise later on, by the orphans, was left in the film. See more »

Goofs

Edward Herrmann's FDR states that Theodore Roosevelt is his uncle. In fact, while related to TR, his wife Eleanor is TR's niece, her father, Elliot, being TR's younger brother. FDR is, more accurately, TR's uncle-in-law (if that relationship exists) See more »

One of the all time great 80s movies!
23 January 2001 | by Cool Leather JacketSee all my reviews

Annie (the one and only original 1982 version)represents for me something special in movie cinema. Growing up with Annie was special. It used to come on HBO every right around the holidays and recently I owned the wide screen version on DVD (I wouldn't dream of that 19 years ago). This movie was such a spectacle...one of the greatest 80s movies that the new generation (to my big surprise) don't appreciate, the great music...the rich storyline...a favorite for everyone that I know and in my big family. To have that glory taken away with such a low rating makes me wonder what people's values are??
