The 1982 movie adaptation of the Broadway Musical Annie is the first of the three movie adaptations of the musical based on the original comic strip series, and the third theatrical adaptation overall. The movie stars Aileen Quinn as Annie, Albert Finney as Oliver Warbucks, Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan and Ann Reinking as Grace Farrell.

Synopsis

Annie is the story of a plucky, red-haired girl who dreams of life outside her dreary orphanage. After unsuccessful escape attempts, Grace Farrell comes to take the child home to live two weeks with billionaire Oliver Warbucks during Christmas. The plucky orphan worms her way into the hearts of the staff and Mr. Warbucks and even the president of the United States! Even though Mr. Warbucks wants to adopt her, she is still looking for her real parents who left a locket with her when they dropped her off at the orphanage. Miss Hannigan's brother and his sleazy girlfriend pose as Annie's parents to gather the reward that Warbucks has offered to Annie's real parents.
