Huston’s late-in-life musical received mixed reviews upon its release (Ebert called it a “dumb toy”). Grownups didn’t connect with the film’s spirited orphan Annie, who is saved from evil headmistress Miss Hannigan (an iconic Carol Burnett) to stay with mogul “Daddy Warbucks” (Albert Finney) to boost his public image, but the film was a seminal moviegoing experience for children. With production numbers including the Busby Berkeley-inspired marvel, “Lets Go to the Movies,” and outstanding supporting performances from Ann Reinking, Bernadette Peters, and Tim Curry, ANNIE is an enduring, nostalgic treat.
