November 14, 2012With the Tony-winning Broadway smash back on the Great White Way, and a new, Will Smith-produced movie in the works, what better time to rediscover the Oscar-nominated 1982 film version of Annie, directed by the legendary John Huston and starring a cast of stage and screen legends? Newcomer Aileen Quinn gives a Golden Globe-nominated performance as cartoonist Harold Gray’s precocious, Depression-era orphan, with Carol Burnett lending ace comic support as the perpetually soused orphanage warden Miss Hannigan, Albert Finney as the billionaire Daddy Warbucks, Bernadette Peters, Ann Reinking, Tim Curry and many more! Composer Charles Strouse and lyricist Martin Charnin’s iconic song score includes the smash hits “Tomorrow” and “It’s a Hard Knock Life” alongside the equally memorable “Let’s Go to the Movies,” “Little Girls” and “Easy Street.”
