Synopsis:
A little girl, stuck in an orphanage run by a bitter, hard-drinking spinster, is saved by a wealthy man through a "Rent-An-Orphan for Christmas" program. The billionaire, won over by Annie's spunk and "joie de vivre," adopts her, and they live happily ever after in his mansion.

Notes:
Based on the hugely successful Broadway musical, the film cost an estimated $52 million to make. Shot in Metrocolor and Panavision. Harold Gray is the creator of the comic strip "Little Orphan Annie."

Reviews:
"...A no-expense-spared tribute to the Music Hall and the kind of show business it represents....They don't build movies like this anymore." - 05/21/1982 New York Times, p.C4


"[U]ndeniably charming..." - 03/01/2004 Premiere, p.96-7


4 stars out of 5 -- "Huston's film is as much an ode to musicals as it is to movies..." - 01/31/2013 Total Film
