Hi Julie,

Do you have any idea which stores sell it in Canada? I don't live near a Best Buy, and I was wondering if they are sold at big retailers like HMV?

The DVD is not available in Canada, however, the movie aired on The Movie Network, I believe. I think it's a pay channel. I'm still working on getting the DVD in stores in Canada.

I hope you are able to get it into stores here, because as you know, "Annie" has a huge following in Canada and the tours have come thru here so many times over the years.

Louanne's headshot is hung on the wall amongst other celebs at the Sony/Hummingbird/O'Keefe Centre. Scott L and I saw it when we went to see the tour there last year. Very neat to see that.

...there is great theatre in Toronto and across Canada. You are right that Annie has always been very popular there. I definitely got my original OBC album in TO, so I'm sure there is a huge Canadian market for LAT and the new CD, too.


(Is Sam the record man still there ? )

Sam's is closed...closed last year. I think the sign might still be there but I am not sure. I will check next time I am in the Yonge-Dundas area. A true landmark.

Thanks, Dina. I thought I heard Sam's was closing..I know it was around since the 1930s, so it's kinda sad. I feel so old when I hear about the changes/ closing of places where I grew up. I spent a lot of time in Sam's ! I guess HMV etc have taken over, just like Wal-Mart and other discount stores
have, all over.

Yeah...they had really hard to find stuff...movies and CD's, records, etc. These days I don't buy that many CD's anymore...just once in a blue moon. Like the rest of the world, I have succumbed to iTunes/the world of the mp3.

Have a great weekend all!

you're welcome

the only channel i can think of is Arte, but I know only 4 channels (the ones everyone have, you don't have to pay for them)
so i guess Cecile knows better
I did see a documantary about Annie about 10 years ago on a french channel, by the time Brittny (sp sorry) Kissinger
became Annie just after Johana Paciti (sp again sorry).

btw, while searching about Annie in the Israeli version of google, I saw that Life After Tomorrow was broadcast in the Israeilen TV as well! dunno if it was an israeli channel, or if they got it through another channel, but i know it was on the tv programm
The 20th anniversary Turning Point special was aired on a channel called France 2, during a show called 'Envoyé Spécial': http://envoye-special.france2.fr/index- ... ge=accueil
Unfortunately, the format of the documentaries shown in that show is probably of less than an hour... I remember they also showed a documentary about kids in show business in the US, which is where I got to see Kathryn Zaremba in Annie Warbucks.

I guess you could try the French public channels, as they often show documentaries. Here are some links:
http://www.france2.fr/
http://www.france3.fr/
http://www.france4.fr/
http://www.france5.fr/
http://www.arte.tv/fr/70.html

Just know that Annie is not very famous here, the most famous probably being the Disney version; I'd say the best asset of your documentary over here would be the fact that Sarah Jessica Parker is in it as she is famous.
