This is actually very difficult. I like Albert Finney much better as Warbucks. I adore Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan. Her rendition of Little Girls is hilarious..."Little shoes, little socks, everything around me is...little..." lol. Tim Curry was a great Rooster and of course Peters was a great Lily. But overall I think I liked Disney's better because it was more accurate...but the performances, as a whole, are better in the original.

It's a Disney version of it. It's definitely not a Disney movie, per se.

I also must say that I love the appearance of ANdrea McAardle in the Disney film. Her voice has only gotten better and it is golden. I loved listening to her "NYC", much better after hearing her sing "Tomorrow" for years. I wish she would perform more on Broadway. I know she did Gypsy a few years back. She could make a neat replacement as Christine Colgate or Jolene Oakes in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.


I loved that part too! Andrea also played Belle in Beauty and the Beast on Broadway around 2000, I remember because it was my first Broadway show and I was in first grade. She was amazing as Belle, I still remember that.

As for which movie I like better, I'm torn but I think I have to go with Disney just because Kristin Chenoweth does such a great job with Lily who's like my favorite character EVER. Although I think that Ms. Hannagin (sp?) really wasn't the same without the drinking. There was like an obvious part missing there. But that's what you get when it's Disney I guess.

When I was a little girl I saw the original version of Annie.. I don't think I'll ever be able to think of Annie as a Disney movie..

another majopr problem with the newer film is.Miss Hannigan isnt a drunk who hits the kids. she is too passive a villian when Bates played her.

I rented the Disney movie and I recognized this! Carol is by far my favorite Hannigan between the two.

Welcome to Disney. Everything has to be 100% squeaky clean or else everyone goes ballistic.

I actually really like certain Disney productions, and plan to audition for the role of Prudence in their cruise ship musical "Twice Charmed." Disney can be brilliant.

I also really like "Annie", obviously enough.

That said, Disney's "Annie" was terrible. Everything deep was taken out. The best thing they did was respect the musical score, but the movie itself was far too politically correct and butchered. Blah.

Seriously, a black woman would not have held Grace Ferrell's position. I'm not a racist. This is the simple truth. This is just one of the many things wrong with the 1999 film.

Does anyone else think they lowered 'Tomorrow'? When I was little I sang Tomorrow in a lower version and I swear it's the exact same thing.. huh.
