Storyline

In the depths of the 1930s, Annie (Aileen Quinn) is a fiery young orphan girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Agatha Hannigan (Carol Burnett). Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy munitions industrialist, Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks (Albert Finney). 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 Agatha Hannigan, her evil brother, Daniel Francis "Rooster" Hannigan (Tim Curry), and a female accomplice, plan to impersonate those people to get the reward for themselves, which puts Annie in great danger.

Trivia

Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks says, "Wait! There's something interesting in that woman's smile. I might learn to like her. Hang her in my bathroom." in reference to the Mona Lisa. It's a reference to the real history of the painting. After Leonardo da Vinci died, ownership passed to King Francis I of France, who had it hung in his bathing room. See more »

Goofs

During "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, which 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. See more »

Why the low rating?

I came on here expecting to see an 8 or something in the 7s, but a 6.6??? This is a solid classic.
