The Movie of Tomorrow.
She's America's favourite orphan! Annie, based on the smash hit Broadway musical, is the story of a plucky, red-haired girl who dreams of a life outside her dingy orphanage. Annie (Aileen Quinn) plans several escapes, but is always foiled by the gin-soaked ruler of the orphanage, Miss Hannigan (played to hilarious perfection by Carol Burnett). One day Annie is chosen to live for one week with a fmous billionaire, "Daddy" Warbucks (Albert Finney). Because of Annie's special charm, the week turns into many and she and Daddy Warbucks are sharing spectacular times in New York City of the 1930's.Meanwhile, Miss Hannigan and her zany, villainous colleagues are plotting to kidnap Annie. Will they succeed? All the terrific songs are here too, including "Its A Hard Knock Life" and "Tomorrow"
