Based on the comic strip character Little Orphan Annie came the Broadway musical, followed by John Huston's adaptation 'Annie' to the silver screen.

In 1933, young orphan Annie (Aileen Quinn) longs to one day find her parents and leave the Hudson Street Orphanage with its cruel, alcoholic supervisor Miss Agatha Hannigan (Carol Burnett). When billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Albert Finney) sends his secretary Grace (Ann Reinking) to the orphanage to get an orphan to stay at his mansion and improve his image, Grace picks Annie. Annie and her dog Sandy will save Warbucks life, and he will try to help in her search for her family by offering a $50,000 reward. This of course moves Agatha Hannigan and her villain brother Daniel the Rooster (Tim Curry) and his girlfriend Lily (Bernadette Peters) to try and collect the reward by impersonating the role of her parents, then drown Annie and split the money three ways...
