Even if you watch the movie very carefully, you would not be aware that the elephant that Miss Hannigan is riding is on ROLLER SKATES! The skates are not visible in the movie at all; only in the documentary on the making of the movie "Lights, Camera, Annie," shown on PBS on March 17, 1982. That final scene with the circus was originally supposed to be a lot longer, but much of it was cut, although pieces of it appear in the documentary.

Columbia Pictures today claims to have "lost" the original print of "Lights, Camera, Annie," which I find difficult to believe, but that's why it hasn't (yet) appeared on any of the Annie movie DVDs.

Julie, what was your personal reaction when the 1982 movie came out? Did you see it with your castmates? Was there a lot of talk among the Broadway cast (children and adults) about the movie? Do you think Martin had any idea it would hurt Broadway ticket sales the way it did? It didn't seem to hurt his own income!
that was a question i always wanted to ask lol

i wonder too why they took out Tomorrow, i don't think it was a fantastic movie, but i think i liked it better than some of you seem to. i discovered it when i was little (like 4). so i couldn't compare it to the stage version, obviously.

i saw the 1999 movie too (but last year when i was 16), and i think i still like the first one better.

i prefer miss Haningan in a Carol Burnett style, rather than the "original" style (like on stage, or in the 1999 movie).
of course they had less budget for the disney movie, but it was to disney for me... the 1982 version seemed realler, i felt like some character in 1999 were sort of caricatures (sp?) (rooster and lily, miss haningan...).
About the bridge scene, what happens in the stage version ? how does miss haningan's plan end ? like in 1982 or 1999 ?
actually, i like all the scenes in the orphanage, but those at Warbuck's bore me a bit..

so a good Annie movie for me, would be a mix of these two..

don't you think it would be cool if they remade it (again) ?

I agree with everything Julie has said. "Tomorrow" is my favourite song from the musical and those women singers ruined it for me. The 1999 movie was alot better, in my opinion. It wasn't amazing, but an improvement. I think i'll stick to seeing the show.
