With songs such as Hard Knock Life, You're Never Fully Dressed (without a smile) and Let's Go to the Movies, 'Annie' is sure to put a smile on your face. The story is well known... little orphan Annie is living in a 1920's orphanage in New York, run by the drunken tyrant Miss Hannigan. Local millionaire Oliver Warbucks invites an orphan to stay at his mansion for a week as a humanitarian gesture (in other words to get good publicity) and yes, our friend Annie is the lucky thing that stays there and proceeds to win his heart. However Annie's heart lies with finding her real parents, which prompts Miss Hannigan and her brother Rooster into forming a dastardly plan which is set to tear Annie and Daddy Warbucks apart...

This is an uplifting and heart-warming film which should delight children and adults alike. A worthy addition to any DVD collection, should this kind of film be your cup of tea.

Review for the Aileen Quinn - Special Anniversary Edition DVD

First off, I adore this film. I burnt out multiple VHS copies and decided I needed a DVD version in order to share this wonderful with some of the younger members of my family (particularly one who enjoyed the 2014 remake).
The film itself is great, perfect for children and any adults who enjoy a great musical. No it isn't exactly identical to the stage version that it is based on, however, I actually prefer this version.
THAT BEING SAID - there are sections of speech/song in this movie that are either made unnecessarily quiet or silenced completely. During 'Hard Knock Life', a lot of Molly's speech is affected by this, which to someone who knows the film almost word for word, it is seriously irritating. If you've never seen it before, you probably wont even notice; but for fans, it can get fairly annoying.

As my title suggests this is a review of the US Import Blu-ray release.
First, and most importantly, for UK buyers....this disc is REGION FREE!!! The back of the box states this and my region-locked player plays it fine.
There are lots of review for the actual film, so in this review I'm only going to focus on the blu-ray release.

The biggest question: Is this worth replacing on Blu-ray. Answer: A resounding YES!!
The picture on the DVD is pretty bad, and, while the image on the blu-ray isn't perfect it's a dramatic leap up from the DVD.
Overall, if you're a fan this is a must-own and I'm very please I bought it.

You're probably wondering why I'm reviewing an American release on the UK profile...well, it's because they're the same. This disc has been out in the States for a while and it worked out £3 cheaper than buying the UK release later this month. The ONLY benefit to buying the UK version is the Digital Copy and, as I didn't care about that, I bought the US version.

Annie was a film that I had enjoyed right throughout my young years, to the extent that I had worn out three VHS tapes of the show. I love this film to to this day and always felt it emanated a feeling of warmth and security into a childs heart, with the unknowing contrast of a child who is comfortable in a well off society to that of the lives of little Annie, Molly and Duffy. This production allowed me as a child to see the poorer side of life, not in a frightened manner but one which could be filled with ones own happiness.
A truly delightful film for all to watch, it touched my heart then and continues to. The songs are great too, my favorite being Maybe, the thoughts of an orphans dream of meeting her parents. I love it!!!

I really enjoyed it.When I was aged about 10 my Greataunt gave me the book Daddy Longlegs which is what Annie was loosely based on..Annie was very well played and I loved listening to her when she was grown up,talking about her memories.Albert Finney was very good and it was interesting watching.him growing to love Annie.Because of all the memories of my childhood I have bought the books "Daddy Longlegs", "What Katie Did"and "What Katie Did Next".I am 78 years old and it is wonderful that these books and the film have lived up to my expectations.Classics such as these will never die.

We enjoyed watching it. Bought it after we had watched the new version of Annie, as I wanted my daughter to see the original. However, to my surprise, and I feel bad for saying it, I actually preferred the more recent version. I guess it's down to personal taste.

I've watched thus brilliant musical many, many times over the years. But this download from amazon has such poor audio quality that we couldn't really watch it. Kids tuned out after 20 minutes. Have had better audio on my old video version. Shame.

I bought this dvd for my Granddaughter in Australia for a Christmas present. I remembered seeing the film years ago with my daughter who was a little girl of the same age. She loved it and we were always singing the songs.
Unknown to me my son had booked tickets to see the new version at the Cinema and this new version is nowhere near as good as the original.
My granddaughter loves it, sings the songs and plays it over and over again.
