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

There was a sequel to the Broadway show called "Annie 2: Miss Hannigans Revenge" which is considered one of the biggest bombs on Broadway ever. It was eventually reworked into the off Broadway production "Annie Warbucks" which is still performed regionally although there's never been a Broadway version. See more »
During the musical number "Sign", Miss Hannigan's bathroom contains several large bottles of her bathtub gin, and she even drinks from one. The bottles are 16-oz. Sheaffer Skrip "master" ink bottles. However, they got their distinctive shape (similar to the CN Tower) in the 1950s. In the 1930s, Skrip master ink bottles were cylindrical, with grooves running around the top a bottom quarter.

I thought that this movie was a real spirit-lifter. It is a movie that I hope everyone who watches it has a change of attitude towards orphans and homeless children and adults. Sometimes I find myself turning my back on homeless people. Although I am ashamed to admit it, I do hope that others will look beyond money and appearance and see what really matters. This movie, once again, was wonderful. I hope that you keep up all of the good work and keep producing and directing movies such as this one. Enjoy all of your comments and all of your hard earned credit that you are receiving and take the time to really preview all of your scripts and watch the movie several times to praise all of your good work. Thank you very much and I will be watching the movies that you produce no matter how long, or short, they might be.
