Annie (1982) Script

The sun 'll come out tomorrow Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow There 'll be sun Just thinking about tomorrow Clears away the cobwebs And the sorrow Till there's none When I'm stuck with a day That's gray and lonely I just stick out my chin And grin and say Oh, the sun'll come out tomorrow So you gotta hang on till tomorrow Come what may Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day away Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day A Way

Maybe far away Or maybe real nearby He may be pouring her coffee She may be straightening his tie Maybe in a house All hidden by a hill She's sitting playing piano He's sitting paying a bill Betcha they're young Betcha they're smart Bet they collect things Like ashtrays and art Betcha they're good Why shouldn't they be?

Their one mistake was giving up me

So maybe now it's time And maybe when I wake They'll be there calling me baby Maybe



It's okay. Everything's gonna be all right.

There, there.

It was only a dream, Molly. It's all right.

How am I supposed to get any sleep?

It was only a dream. Everything's all right.

Molly shouldn't be in this room.

She's a baby. She cries all the time.

She wets the bed.

I do not!

You're the one who shouldn't be in here!

Brat, stop! We're gonna get in trouble.

Go, Duffy! Go!

Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness!

Cut it out!

I mean it! Do you want Miss Hannigan to come in?

Go back to bed.

Now. Or you'll have me to deal with.

Blow it out of your old Wazoo.

Close your eyes. Think about your folks.

You're the only one who has folks. Mine are dead.

Think of folks who want to adopt you...

...because they want a little girl with brown hair and brown eyes.

Betcha he reads Betcha she sews Maybe she's made me A closet of clothes Maybe they're strict As straight as a line Don't really care As long as they're mine Oh, my goodness.

So maybe now this prayer's The last one of its kind Won't you please Come get your baby?

Did I hear singing in here?

All right. Fine.

Since we're all so wide awake!

Get up! Get out of bed!

Clean up this mess! Get dressed!

This room had better be regulation before breakfast... little pig droppings. Or kill, kill, kill!

It's in the middle of the night. -"It's in the middle of the night."

If this floor don't shine like the top of the Chrysler Building...

...your backsides will.


Yes, Miss Hannigan.

What do we say, Annie? I love you, Miss Hannigan.

Why any kid would want to be an orphan is beyond me.

It's the hard-knock life for us Instead of treated We get tricked Instead of kisses We get kicked It's the hard-knock life

Got no folks to speak of So it's the hard-knock row we hoe Cotton blankets instead of wool Empty bellies instead of full It's the hard-knock life

Don't it feel like the wind Is always howling?

Don't it seem like There's never any light?

Once a day, don't you want To throw the towel in?

It's easier than putting up a fight

No one's there When your dreams at night get creepy No one cares if you grow Or if you shrink No one dries When your eyes get red and weepy From the crying you would think This place would sink

Empty belly life Rotten smelly life Full of sorrow life No tomorrow life Santa Claus we never see Santa Claus, what's that? Who's he?

No one cares for you a smidge When you're in an orphanage It's the hard-knock life

You'll stay up till this dump...

...shines like the top of the Chrysler Building.

Kill, kill.

Yank the whiskers from her chin Little pig droppings Jab her with a safety pin Rotten orphans.

Make her drink a Mickey Finn Nobody loves you. I love you, Miss Hannigan.

Get to work!

Strip that bed!

Scrub that floor!

Polish my shoes!

And I mean...

...start now!

It's the hard-knock life for us Mud in your eye!

It's the hard-knock life for us No one cares for you a smidge When you're in an orphanage It's the hard-knock life The hard-knock life

We better get out of here or we'll get killed.

Cover me up good. All you ever do is run away.

Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness!

She'll put you in the cellar.

You'll get whipped again. You're gonna get us in trouble.

Molly, shut up!

I'm gonna tell. And I'm gonna rearrange your teeth!

Stomp on her foot!

What are you all just standing around here for?

You're supposed to clean the bathroom and kitchen...

...before lunch, my little pig droppings.

And if you skip the corners, there will be no lunch.

And we're not having hot mush today.

We're having cold mush.

What? We love you, Miss Hannigan.


Where's Annie?

She had to go bathroom. -"She had to go bathroom."

Miss Hannigan.

Mr. Bundles. Mr. Bundles.

It's time for a tumble with a bundle.

Not today. I'm behind--

My schedule, I mean.

What are schedules in the storms of passion, Mr. Bundles?

Just so much flotsam and jetsam.

Miss Hannigan, please!

What are you doing out here? Helping you.

It's heavy today. It's a lot heavier than usual.

It shouldn't be. What's in there? Miss Hannigan.

Mr. Bundles.

Miss Hannigan. Yes?

You're my kind of woman. Oh, yes. Yes.

Till next month, Miss Hannigan.

I'll be right here.

Mr. Bundles, I'm in here.

Thank you, Mr. Bundles. Good luck.

Get his tail!

Poor dog.

Leave him alone. What's he ever done to you?


All right, who's next?

Anybody else?

Scram, man! Let's go!

Then get lost. Let's get a move on!

Let's hotfoot it! Shake a leg! Come on!

Let's go! Come on!

Hey, you're all right.

I didn't do nothing any decent person wouldn't have done.

Dumb dog.

Dumb dog, why are you following me?

I ain’t got a crumb, dog How about letting me be?

I ain't gonna feed you Ain't got a scrap for you Need you?

Don't give a rap for you, dumb dog Dumber than they come, dog You're the most presuming dog That a human could know

Hey, mister, that's my dog!

Oh, yeah? Where's his license? Where's his leash?

He's no more your dog than I am your father.

I left his license at home.

Please don't take him to the pound. My father's blind.

This dog leads him to work. If he doesn't work, we'll starve.

What's his name?

My father's name?

The dog's name. Oh, the dog's name!

His name's Sandy.

That's it. Sandy.

Call him.

Call him?

Go over there and call him.

You mean by his name?

By his name. The dog's name.

Sandy! Come here, Sandy.

Sandy! Come here, Sandy!

Here, Rover. Come here, boy.

Rin Tin Tin! Come here. Come to Daddy.

Sandy, come here. Rin Tin Tin, come here.


Come here, Sandy. Come here, Sandy. Come here.

Good old Sandy!

You've got yourself a dog. Get him a collar and a leash.

Yes, sir.

Miss Hannigan! Miss Hannigan!



Look what I found under a paving stone.

Oh, Annie!

Annie, my little peach fuzz, are you all right?

I was worried sick. I knew you would be.

A big-hearted woman like you.

How can I ever thank you...


I'm sure we can think of something if we get our heads together.

Kissy, kissy, kissy.

Kill! Kill!

We love you, Miss Hannigan. Sure.

Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness!

He smells.

What's his name, Annie? Guess.


That ain't a name for this mutt.

So how about Champion Champion, you're anything but We could call him Tiger But there's no bite in him Tiger Kittens would frighten him Rover When you think it over Rover is the perfect name For this dumb-looking dog Rover!

Sandy, Sandy's his name If you please If you don't believe me Ask any one of the fleas Residing on Sandy True he ain't pedigreed, Sandy There ain't no better breed And he really comes in handy Especially when you're all alone In the night And you're small And terribly frightened It's Sandy Sandy who'll always be There She's coming. She's coming.

Hide him.

I love you, Miss Hannigan.

And you will love the paddle closet, Annie!

And this...

...will love the sausage factory.

No, Miss-- What?

We love you, Miss Hannigan.

Shut up.

Apples, a nickel. Apples here.

Yes, ma'am.

Here you go. Thank you. God bless you.

Apples here.

Big, delicious apples here.

All right! All right!


Miss Hannigan, I'm Grace Farrell.

The New York Board of Orphans sent me.

My goodness, won't you come in?

Thank you. Right this way.

Well, welcome.

Welcome to our happy home. Off my foot, Molly!

Thank you. Ladies.

Smell that perfume.

And your name was? Grace Farrell.

She wants a girl to clean her house. Aptly named.

I bet it's gonna be me! I'm here to inquire about an orphan.

Grace, I can explain the whole thing. What happened was...

...the child bribed Mr. Bundles to smuggle her out of here.

I should've called Mr. Donatelli, but the truth is...

...I just saw red, so I called the cops instead.

Anyway she's back, everything's fine. All's well that ends well.

No harm, no foul, my little scissors legs?

What are you talking about?

Are you peddling beauty products? I don't need beauty products.

If that's what you're doing, peddle yourself right out of here.

I am the private secretary to Oliver Warbucks.

The Oliver Warbucks?

Oliver Warbucks the millionaire? No, the billionaire.

Holy Mary, Mother of God.

Mr. Warbucks would like to invite an orphan to spend a week with him.

I'm here to select one.

That's just wonderful.

What kind of orphan did he have in mind?





And I'1aPPY-

How old? Well, age doesn't really matter.


Eight. Nine.


Yes, 10 is just fine.


I'm sorry, I almost forgot.

Mr. Warbucks prefers red hair. A 10-year-old redhead?

Nope. Sorry, ain't got it.

What about this child?

Annie? Yes.

You don't want Annie.

Why not?


She's a drunk.


How'd you like to spend a week with Mr. Warbucks at his house?

Oh, boy! I would love to. I would really, really love to.

Wait! Slow down! Hold on there!

You can have any orphan in the whole orphanage except Annie.


She's got it coming to her, and I don't mean a week of luxury.

She's got to learn to know her place. Her place?

Annie is entirely too cheeky.

Mr. Warbucks likes cheeky orphans. Tough!

I assume your resistance has to do with Mr. Donatelli and the Board of Orphans.

Don't assume nothing, sweetheart.

Mr. Warbucks knows Mr. Donatelli.

Is that a fact? Yes, it is.

It's also a fact that he said how many people he had lined up for your job.

Is that a fact? Yes.

It's awful to be out of work, isn't it, Miss Hannigan?

Just terrible.

Leaping lizards!

-"Leaping lizards." The limousine is waiting.

My dog. What?

Here, Sandy. Come here.

He's really nice. Really good.

He never jumps up on people.

He's a very sweet dog, but really, I don't think Mr. Warbucks--

Then I'm not coming. What?

She's going to send him to the sausage factory.

She said so herself. I'm not zoned for dogs.

We'll take the dog. Oh, boy!

Bye, Annie!

I'll be back. I'll bring everybody presents.

Bye, Molly. See you soon. Bye, Pepper. Bye, Duffy.

Is this a train station? Are we going on a train?

No, this is Mr. Warbucks' house.

Leaping lizards.

This is Punjab. He and the Asp are Mr. Warbucks' bodyguards.

Come along. Let's get you settled.

Been to the zoo, Miss Farrell?

Not recently, Drake.

Has the organ been tuned? Yes, miss.

Pool heated? Yes.

Tennis net up? Yes.

French doors fixed? Yes.

Elevator oiled? Yes.

Typewriter repaired? Yes.

Second Teletype installed? Yes.

Are you allergic to dogs, Drake? No, filth.

Is dinner under way, Mrs. Pugh? Yes, miss.

Preparing his favorite. Texas grapefruit, Virginia ham...

...Idaho potatoes, Wisconsin cheese, Washington apples and baked Alaska.

I have an announcement to make.

This is Annie, and she'll be staying with us for a week.

This is her dog, Sandy.

He'll be staying with me.

May I take your sweater, miss?

Will I get it back? Of course, miss!

What would you like to do first?

The windows, then the floors, that way if I drip--

You don't understand. You don't have to do any cleaning here.

I won't?

How am I gonna earn my keep?

You're our guest, Annie.

Cecilie will pick out all your clothes Blue is her best color. No, red, I think.

Your bath is drawn by Mrs. Greer Soap. No, bubbles, I think.

Annette comes in to make your bed The silk? No, the satin sheets, I think.

I think I'm gonna like it here

The swimming pool is down the stairs Inside the house? Oh, boy!

The tennis court is in the rear I never even picked up a racket. What?

Have an instructor here at noon And get that Don Budge fellow, if he's available.

I think I'm gonna like it here

When you wake, ring for Drake Drake will bring your tray When you're through Mrs. Pugh comes to take it away

Annie! Come on, Annie! Come on!

No need to pick up any toys That's okay, I haven't got any anyway.

No finger will you lift, my dear We have but one request Please put us to the test I know I'm gonna like it here

Used to room in a tomb Where I'd sit and freeze Get me now, holy cow Could someone pinch me, please?

Hold still. Hold still!

You mutt!

Hi, Annie!

Got something for you.

Here you are, Annie.

We've never had a little girl We've never had a little girl We've never had a little girl I'm very, very, very glad to volunteer I'm glad she's glad to volunteer We hope you understand Your wish is our command I know I'm gonna like it here We know you're gonna like it here

It's Mr. Warbucks. Don't worry now.

Welcome home, sir. Did the painting arrive?

They're just uncrating it, sir.

I don't like it. Send it back. Any messages?

President Roosevelt called three times. He said it was urgent.

Everything's urgent to a Democrat. What else?

Mr. Rockefeller, Mr. Vanderbilt, Mr. DuPont, Mr. Carnegie.

Wait! There's something interesting in that woman's smile.

I might learn to like her. Hang her in my bathroom.

No time for dinner tonight. Send out for an American cheese sandwich.

Come, let's get started.

What the devil's going on here?

This is the press representative. Your image.

Oh, yes.

Pick him up, Punjab. Get him another camera.

Why do I smell wet dog'?

Because we gave Sandy a bath.

What's this?

This is Annie, the orphan who will be staying with us.

What are you talking about?

They wanted to take photos of you sharing your home with an orphan.

Only for a week.

This doesn't look like a boy! Orphans are boys.

You didn't say a boy. You just said an orphan, so I got a girl.

I want a boy!

I've got an interesting smile too, sir.

Couldn't you learn to like me, sir? Hang me in the bathroom?

Take them back now. Sir, she just got here.

That's okay, Miss Farrell. We'll be okay.

It was nice meeting you anyhow. I sure do like your place.

Thank you, Annette. Annie. I've had a swell time.

The Asp drove us here in a car the size of a train.

And Punjab put a spell on Sandy.

We made Drake sneeze. And I played your pipe organ.

Sandy got a bubble bath.

I've had enough fun to last me for years.

It's a really swell idea to have an orphan for a week.

A really terrific idea.

Even if it is only for your image, even if I'm not the orphan...

-...I'm glad you're doing it. I'm glad you approve.

Let's get to work!

Are you sure you need a boy? Couldn't she stay?

Whatever, but just for the week.

You know what? What?

I love you. I know.

Kiss me as only you can. You devil.

Get away!

Little girls, little girls Everywhere I turn I can see them Little girls, little girls Night and day I eat, sleep and breathe them I'm an ordinary woman With feelings I'd like a man to nibble on my ear But I'll admit, no man has bit So how come I'm the mother of the year?

How I hate little shoes, little socks And each little bloomer I'd have cracked years ago If it weren't for my sense of humor Some women are dripping With diamonds Some women are dripping with pearls Lucky me, lucky me Look at what I'm dripping with Little girls

Little cheeks, little teeth Everything around me is Little If I wring little necks Surely I would get an acquittal Someday I'll step on their freckles Some night I'll straighten their curls Send a flood, send the flu Anything that you can do To little, little, little Little, little, little

Little girls

Someday I'll /and in the nuthouse With all the nuts and the squirrels There I'll stay, tucked away Till the prohibition of Little Girls

Rooster! Sis.

You're supposed to be in jail.

They let me out early. For good behavior.

I want you to meet a friend of mine. Lily St. Regis.

Named from the hotel. Room service.

This afternoon, I put 10 on the nose of a beautiful horse at 8-1.

Sure enough, the scum-bum took off and whipped the pack.

No kidding?

The thing is, I got delayed and I didn't have time to cash in.

Eighty bucks, sis, first thing in the morning, guaranteed.

All I need is 5 to tide me over.

Not even a nickel for the subway.

Come on, sis.

I bet Miss Sticky-Fingers here can loan you a lousy 5 bucks.

I beg your pardon, I'm sure.

But I don't stoop to what you're incinerating.

Give me back my goods, toots.

Okay, Rooster.

If I loan you 5 bucks, will you take this dumb hotel out of here?

I'm sorry, sis. Lily.

Not even a nickel for the subway.

You and her have the same mother?


Betcha he reads Betcha she sews Maybe she's made me A closet of clothes Maybe they're strict As straight as a line Don't really care As long as they're mine So maybe now this prayer's The last one of its kind Won't you please come get your baby?


This room's bigger than Grant's tomb.

Me too.

Come on, Sandy. Come on!

In conclusion...

...because your country has raised its voice loud and clear for democracy...

...I will extend to you a credit line...

...for 35 of my new fighter-bombers.

That will come with a year's supply of spare parts and ammunition--

What's this?

Sandy's not used to sleeping by himself. He gets lonesome.

Where were we?

-"Ammunition," sir. Are you getting a lot done?

I'd get a lot more done if certain people...

If Franklin Delano Roosevelt would leave me alone.

Six calls since I got home.

What's he want? My support for the New Deal.

He is our president, sir.


Remove this animal and its young mistress along with it.

Dear Richie, this letter will serve as confirmation of correspondence...

...concerning the details of your extended deferment.

--On or before September 1.

If you cannot meet that deadline, you will be charged interest.

Six percent. Cordially, et cetera.

P.S. One of my companies is developing bomb-proof glass.

This may be of interest to you if the global situation deteriorates.

What was that? Well done, Sandy.

Was that man trying to kill you? That will be all.

Yes, sir. Come along, dear.

Who'd want to kill Mr. Warbucks? The Bolsheviks.

He's proof that the American system works...

...and Bolsheviks don't want anyone to know.

The Bolsheviks? Leaping lizards!

Get your dog out of my pool!

He thought you were drowning. He was trying to save your life.

Go on, you mutt. Get out of here. Come on.

Like my suit?

What? Oh, yes.

Miss Farrell picked it out.

Never thought I'd get used to a girl. Girls are easier to get used to.

Like Miss Farrell, she does all the work around here.

You don't know her first name. I do. It's Grace.

She thinks you're the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I beg your pardon.

I know it's none of my business, but you never notice anything.

Sliced bread.

Wilhelm, please offer your son my congratulations on his engagement.

Hold on. Buy copper.

Tell the crown prince that my yacht in Monte Carlo... entirely at his disposal.

Hold on. More copper.

Don't encourage her, Punjab. Maybe I should take her out.

Where do you want to go? To meet President Roosevelt.

How about a movie? Pepper went to a movie once.

She said it was swell, and Miss Hannigan goes all the time.

Take her to the Radio City Music Hall. Aren't you going to take me?

Me? Annie, you may think that Miss Farrell does all the work...

...but I'm a very busy man.

I know. Didn't mean to get in the way, Mr. Warbucks.

Nobody has to take me. I'll go practice my backhand.

Pepper lies a lot. She probably hasn't been to a movie either.

Actually, I think it's better when you don't know what you're missing.

Punjab, buy out the 8:00 show. Let's all go to the movies.

You should leave your hair down. No, I couldn't.

Miss Hannigan says a man don't look at your brains.

Oh, really? My goodness.

Come on, let's go to the movies.

Let's go see the stars.

Cowboy heroes Cops and robbers Glamour and strife Bigger than life

Sitting in the darkness What a world to see Let's go to the movies, Annie Wait and see Bette Davis is probably lying And Greta Garbo is probably crying While Robert Taylor Is locked in her dying embrace Chico and Groucho and Chaplin And Lloyd are all super Sweet Mickey Mouse Shirley Temple And dear Jackie Cooper Let's go to the movies Let's go see the stars

For the "lady of the camellias

- They're twice as large as usual. I'll have twice as many as usual Twice as many? I know what those things cost.

And when she orders her hats and dresses from you?

They're an investment.

You won't be young forever. It's time you settled your future.

I know the very man for you.

Really? Yes, really.

No one has ever loved you as I do. True, but what can I do about it?

You should go away and not see me anymore.

Don't go in anger. Laugh at yourself a little, as I laugh at myself.

Come and talk to me once in a while in a friendly way.

That's too much and not enough.

Believe in love, Marguerite.

So you do love him.

Dare to tell me that you love him, and you're free of me forever.

I love him.

Come in here, all of you. See this woman? You know her.

Listen to what I'm going to say.

I accepted her favors. I thought she loved me.

Let her make sacrifices when others had more to give.

But bear witness, I owe her nothing.

Take it. Go on, take it.

Buy camellias. Buy diamonds Buy carriages. Buy a grave.

You know how to treat a woman as she deserves. Like the cheat this one is.


Oh, it's you.

I've been down in the street half the night... walking under your window...

...wanting to come up, but not daring to. I felt so guilty.

Don't think such things, Marguerite.

Even if we can't go to the country today...

...think of how happy we were once and how happy we'll be again.

Think of the day you found the four-leaf clover.

Think of the vows that we're going to make to each other.

This is for life, Marguerite.



No, don't leave me. Marguerite, come back.

Get her nightgown behind the bathroom door.


Miss Farrell. It's all right.

How did you learn that? Learn what?

That. What?

You put her to bed. You put her to bed too.

I did? Yes, you did.

Good heavens.

That was a wonderful evening. I have to close a factory.

About Annie. What about Annie?

Could we keep her?

You haven't seen that orphanage. I can't bear to send her back there.

Get a hold of yourself. What's come over you?

I'd take care of her. You have plenty of room here.

We could take her on as your ward. Absolutely not.

I love money. I love power.

I do not now, nor ever will, love children.

Watching you with her last night, I thought maybe...


I've just noticed something. Yes?

You're awfully pretty when you argue with me.

Thank you, sir. Oliver.

Do you just love money and power and capitalism?

They'll never love you back.

Your teeth are crooked. I'll have them fixed.

I like them crooked. I'll leave them.

Thank you.

I could have the papers signed this morning.

It means a great deal to you. Yes, it means a great deal to me.

I'll do it myself.

I could just kiss you!

Grace, get her a little gift.

That's a good idea.

Something from Tiffany's. A locket.

Be careful at that orphanage. That woman's got claws and fangs.

We got Annie.

We've got Annie? Yeah.

She's like a shine on your shoes Or hearing a blues That's great

Makes you relax Like a big tax rebate We got Annie

We got Annie And Benny Goodman's got swing Bing is the king, by far Mutt has got Jeff And Eleanor, FDR

We got Annie We got Annie We got Annie

We got Annie

We got Annie

Annie It's a hard-knock life for us.

It's a hard-knock life for us.

No one cares for you a smidge...

...when you're in an orphanage.

What are you doing?

Why aren't you marching in line with the rest of them?

Duffy, come here. Come on.

You're hiding something from Miss Hannigan behind your back.

No. Let me have it.

Get inside!

I've seen his picture in the paper with President Roosevelt.

Hannigan, I presume? Yes.

I want to talk to you about Annie.

You want to return her and forget it, or trade up?

I want to adopt her.

Would you excuse me for a moment?

Would you care to step into my office? Thank you.

Hi, sweetie.

Little cutie.

This way.

Welcome. Miss Hannigan--

Mr. Warbucks, for a Republican, you are sinfully handsome.

Thank you.

I go absolutely weak in the knees over men like you.

My God, is that thing real? Just sign the papers.

Would you like to see the bedroom, my billiard ball?


I make a very dry martini. Right here.

I make a very wet soufflé. Just your name.

Don't be so mean, you mean meanie. Come, my dear.

Let's you and me make Why shouldn't we make hay?

I have an appointment at 1. This way.

Women! Does it take this long to get to Tiffany's and back?

I hear the car. It's probably not the right car.

It's the Duesenberg. What took you so long?

What's happening here?

Where's Annie? She's taking her karate lesson.

Don't be nervous. I'm not. You give it to her.

It was your idea. She likes you more than me.

Oliver, will you pull yourself together!

Want to see what the Asp taught me today?

To the couch, Punjab, if you please.

I didn't think it would work. Now you know it does.

Shall I call a doctor? It'll be fine.

Thank you.

We'll leave you two alone.

I want to talk to you about something very serious.

You don't want me anymore. On the contrary, I do.

Good Lord!

Can we have a man-to-man talk? Sure.

What I'm proposing would involve a long-term agreement.


...maybe you ought to know more about me before you make up your mind.

Okay. Let's go for a walk.

I was born in Liverpool.

My brother died of pneumonia because we didn't have money for medicine.

I decided then and there that one day I would be very rich.

Good idea. America was the land of opportunity.

I signed on a ship as cabin boy when I was 12.

By the time I was 21, I'd made my first million.

In the next 10 years, I turned that into 100 million.

In those days that was a lot of money. I was ruthless.

Making money was all I ever gave a damn about, up to now.

Let's go inside. Okay.

It has occurred to me that no matter how many houses I have... many Rembrandts...

...unless I have someone to share it with, I might as well be broke.

Understand what I'm trying to say? Sure.

Kind of.

Kind of? I guess not.

Damn! Oh, excuse me.

You've given me so much already. I have the papers. It's official.

What is?

It's so pretty but--

Let me put it on you. No.

It's a swell locket, but if it's all the same, I'll keep my old one.

It isn't all the same. Your old one's broken. This one is engraved.

"To Annie. With love from Daddy Warbucks."

When my folks left me at the orphanage 10 years ago...

...they left a note saying they'd come back to get me.

They kept the other half of this locket so I'd know them when they came.

I'm going to find them someday and have a regular mother and father... a regular kid. I am.

I don't mean to hurt your feelings. You've been nicer to me than anyone.

But I've been dreaming of my folks for as long as I can remember.

I've just got to find them.

And I'll help you.

Grace, get me J. Edgar on the phone!

Drake, get me the chief of police!

Asp, get me Walter Winchell!


...get me William Randolph Hearst!

And, Saunders, get me a drink!

Six, seven, eight, you're on.

I-O-D-E-N-T Iodent Hey, hobo man Hey, dapper Dan You both got your style But, brother You're never fully dressed Without a smile

Your clothes may be Beau Brummelly They stand out a mile But, brother You're never fully dressed Without a smile The lovely Boylan Sisters.

Who cares what they're wearing On Main Street or Savile Row It's what you wear from ear to ear And not from head to toe That matters Tonight as a special treat from yours truly, Bert Healy...

...I'd like to introduce a little orphan named Annie.

Who's that who just walked into our Red Network studios?

It's none other than the Wall Street tycoon, Oliver Warbucks!

"Thank you, Bert Healy. It's swell--" Do I say swell?

"Swell to be on the lodenz' Hour."

I understand you're conducting a search for Annie's parents.

I told you that before we went on the air. Oh, yes!

"I am now conducting a coast-to-coast, nationwide search...

...for Annie's parents. Drop page. Warbucks continues.

I am offering a cash reward to Annie's parents of $50,000 cash. "

Oh, Mr. Warbucks!

Oh, boy! 50,000 smackers.

Annie's parents, if you're listening, contact Oliver Warbucks--

"Warbucks interrupts.

At my house, 987 Fifth Avenue, New York City.

Thank you, Bert Healy, and thank you, all-new Iodent.

The toothpaste with miracle K-64 to fight hali--"

Halitosis. -"And for letting me talk to you.

Good night, Bert Healy, for the Red Network. Drop page."

Did I just do a commercial? Let's get out of here.

I've never endorsed a product in all of my career.

For all of you, our smiles family, this is Bert Healy saying...

Hey, hobo man Hey, dapper Dan You both got your style But, brother You're never fully dressed Without a smile

Your clothes may be Beau Brummelly They stand out a mile But, brother You're never fully dressed Without a smile

Who cares what they're wearing On Main Street or Savile Row It's what you wear from ear to ear And not from head to toe That matters The lovely Boylan Sisters.


So, senator So, janitor So long for a while Remember you're never fully dressed Without a smile

You're never fully dressed Without a smile

You're never fully dressed Without a smile Who cares what they're wearing On Main Street or Savile Row It's what you wear from ear to ear And not from head to toe That matters So, senator So, janitor So long for a while Remember you're never fully dressed Though you may wear the best You're never fully dressed Without a smile You're never fully dressed You're never fully dressed Without a--

Do I hear happiness in here?

They never miss.

Everybody's going to get their chance.

Annie, it's your mother.

We've got to get her out of here. We can't expose her to this.

Get the autocopter ready.

Guess what. Mr. Warbucks is going to take you to see the president.

Oh, boy!

Marvelous! Aren't Republicans ostentatious?

Franklin, behave. It's astonishing he's here at all.

What do you call this, Oliver? An autocopter.

You don't need an airport. They say it can land on a dime.

Whatever that may be. You being here means a great deal.

It means nothing. It means only that Annie wanted to meet you.

Nice to meet you, Mr. President. It's my pleasure, Annie.

Thank you for bringing the old goat. Make a New Dealer of him yet.

Inconceivable. Don't mind him, Oliver.

Come along, Annie.

My Uncle Theodore used to teach his children to walk on stilts.

I can't teach you that, I can teach you to roll in a chair with wheels.

My own private roller coaster.

The New Deal is badly planned, badly organized and administered.

You don't think your programs through.

Think what you're going to do to the economy!

People don't eat in the long run. People can't feed their children.

The lucky ones are left in orphanages.

The older ones steal, starve.

This business of this country is business--

Take them off the dole and put them to work. That's what I'll do.

In the National Parks, clearing trails, fighting fires, planting trees.

Hold it. I want to feed them and house them...

...and pay them.

Enough to send home to their parents... they can hold their heads up and be proud to be Americans.

That's a swell idea. It isn't a swell idea, Annie...'s mistaken foolishness.

Big-hearted and empty-headed.

Which parks? Which children? What will it cost?

Who's going to organize it? Who's going to run it?

I was hoping you would. Me?

And Annie. Leaping lizards!

Out of the question. How can I help?

Wait a minute!

You can help recruit young people. Hold everything!

They think their government doesn't care whether they live or die.

With your help, we could convince them otherwise-

I want to say something.

There's a song I used to sing in the orphanage when I was sad.

It always cheered me up. Eleanor!

Just thinking about tomorrow Clears away the cobwebs And the sorrow Till there's none When I'm stuck with a day That's gray and lonely I just stick out my chin And grin and say

The sun 'll come out tomorrow So you gotta hang on till tomorrow Come what may Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day away

Oh, Franklin.

You'll help us too, won't you, Oliver?

Think of the children. Think of Annie.

The sun 'll come out tomorrow Sing, Oliver, that's an order from your commander in chief.

There 'll be sun Eleanor? I can't sing.


Clears away the cobwebs And the sorrow Till there's none Solo for the president.

When I'm stuck with a day That's gray and lonely I just stick out my chin And grin and say Everybody! Republicans too, Oliver. Sing!

The sun 'll come out tomorrow So you've got to hang on till tomorrow Come what may Harmony!

Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day away Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day A Way

All right, everybody, step up. I've got fresh fish here.

Do you run this establishment? Unfortunately.

Ten years ago, we left our little baby girl on the front steps.

There was a job managing a hotel, but only if we had no children.

Wrap it up. We never meant to leave Annie.

Now we have a hardware store in New Jersey. We can take care of her.

We've always loved her.

You're Annie's parents? We live over the store.

There's a yard out back. With chickens.

And a rooster.


My God! I never would have recognized you.

If we can fool you, we can fool "Big Bucks."

Fifty thousand smackers. You'll be the death of me.

Sis, this is going to be the best bunco job ever.

We need details. About Annie. Specifics.

What's in it for me'? A three-way split of the $50,000.

I want half. All right, half!

Rooster! All right!

Twenty-five grand for me and Lil, 25 grand for you.

Why don't we wait and see what she's got.

See if it's worth 25 grand.

You want details? I've got details.

I've got specifics on every kid in this dump.

It's just finding the right box.

Annie wears a locket around her neck.

It's a broken locket.

She says her parents saved the other half to come and claim her with.

Years ago, her parents were killed in a fire.

The cops brought me all their junk.

Well, my darling baby brother...

...if Annie's parents can claim her with that locket, so can we.

Fifty thousand smackers. The kid we'll drop in the river.

They're going to do something bad to Annie!

Have you cleaned the can? Listen to me. I mean it.

Clean the can!

Duffy, Tessie, somebody! Do you want a knuckle sandwich?

We've got to warn Annie! Scrub!

It's in a sealed envelope.

It ain't fair how we scrounge For three or four bucks While she gets Warbucks The little brat. Look in those!

It ain't fair This here life is driving me nuts Make yourself useful!

When we get peanuts She's living fat Maybe she holds the key That little lady To getting more bucks Right, instead of less. It'll have her name on it.

Maybe we fix it again With something shady Where does that put us?

Give you one guess

Open it.


Easy Street

Easy Street Annie is the key Yes, sirree

- Easy Street We'll live the plush life Easy Street The lazy, lush life Better get there

The gravy's flowing there We'll soon be going there Where you sleep till noon Yeah, yeah, yeah

Move them feet Move them ever-loving feet To Easy Street Where living's sweet That's where we're gonna be Easy Street Easy Street

Move them feet to Easy Street That's where we're gonna

Hit it, sis.

That's where we're gonna Stay

Easy Street

Now do the other one.

Duffy, Tessie, somebody! They're going to do something to Annie!

Who is? They are!

Who's they? Miss Hannigan.

Oh, my goodness!


Where do you think you're going? Run, run, go tell Annie!

Stop them.

Get in that closet.

Stop it!

Whose rotten idea was this?

Are they here?

A man who counts his chickens before they hatch gets a scrambled egg.


Have my parents come for me? We haven't found them.

I interviewed 865 couples. None of them knew about the locket.

I never realized how many dishonest people there are in New York.

They're dead. I guess I've known that deep down for a long time.

I'm not giving up, so don't you.

I didn't want to be just another orphan. I wanted to be special.

You are special. Never stop believing that.

We're trapped.

Oh, my goodness. Oh, my goodness.

We'll never get out of here. I've got an idea.

Great idea.

It's heavy. Don't drop it.

All right. Now what do you want to do?

She'll be so mad if she catches us.

I'm not so sure I want to do this. We'll be in so much trouble.

Duffy, hand me something. Here.

There's space up here. Be careful.

Oh, my goodness. Oh, my goodness.

Help me get UP-

Give me your hand.

It's a long way down. Are you sure you want to do this?

Wish me luck. Good luck.

We were starving. We needed the job That's why we left our little girl.

Wrapped in a newspaper. On the steps of the orphanage.

What's this?

This is Ralph and Shirley Mudge from Hoboken, New Jersey.


Ralph, look! She still has the locket.

We finally found you.

You heard about the reward on the radio.

Reward? We don't have a radio.

In the paper. Paper?

What paper? How did you know Annie was here?

The lady at the orphanage told us. I have her birth certificate here.

I've kept it close to my heart all of these years.

"Ann Marie Mudge.

October 18, 1922."

I'll go pack.

Do you want me to help, baby?

No, thanks...


Come on.

A certified check!

We're so glad to have found Annie. We don't need this.

I'll take it back. Of course, we are poor people.

It would help us a lot.

We could buy her milk, a warm blanket.

Put it in your pocket, Mrs. Mudge.

Come on, you guys.

Oh, my goodness! We're never going to make it.

We've found Fifth Avenue. Number one, Fifth Avenue.

We've got to go to 987.

Molly, get on my back. Come on, you guys, help.

Will the stores take this back? All your new clothes?

I guess so. Don't you want to keep them?

My folks are poor. All these clothes are going to make them feel bad.

Take them to the orphanage. Certainly.

This will look so cute on Molly.

This will look good on Duffy.

Betcha my life Is gonna be swell Looking at them It's easy to tell And maybe I'll forget How nice he was to me And how I was almost his baby

It'll be fine Nothing to fear She'll be as happy As she was here Things have worked out Much better than planned It makes you smile When fate takes a hand

And I know I'll forget How much she meant to me And how she was almost my baby Maybe

Did you get it? She has it.

Let me see it.

I'd better keep it. Over my dead body.

That's the brightest thing I've ever heard you say.

Ladies! Ladies!

Help, Mr. Warbucks! Help! Get on the road!

We'll never find the house.

I wish I'd been outside New York City.

When I get my half!

I say we go back. We can't.

We've been walking for 100 years!

We're never going to get there. But we have to.

Let's take a vote. All in favor of calling it quits?

I'll get a gold lamé number. In Atlantic City.

We aren't stopping till we hit Atlantic City.

Help, Mr. Warbucks! Shut up, kid.

Look, there's Sandy!

Come here! Come here!

Come on, let's go!

Hurry up_ Hurry! Hurry!

I can't run anymore.

Quiet down, girls.

You want to see Mr. Warbucks? All right, come on.

Oh, my goodness!

What now? Sir.

I think he's a highness. Your Highness.

We're friends of Annie's. Annie's gone.

Her parents took her away. But they wasn't her parents.

They was bad people. Leaping lizards!

You take the autocopter, I'll take the car.

J. Edgar? Warbucks here. Orphan Annie has been kidnapped.

I want every G-man on this in the next 20 minutes.

Where's the fire, fellas?

The truck is on Canal Street, heading east.

East on Canal. Well done, Punjab. Don't lose them.

Can we stop? I've got to go.

I've really got to, Miss Hannigan.

I mean it. When you've got to go, you've got to go.

Make it fast.

Rooster, grab her! She's got the check!

Cut her off at the bridge. Goddamn it!

Come back here, you goddamn kid!

Mr. Warbucks will eat your livers.

I'll kill you. He's really going to kill her.

Rooster! Rooster, stop!

Rooster, she's a baby.

Come back here.


I'm gonna kill her! No, I'm not gonna let you!

She may be a mean, rotten, little orphan...

-...but I'm not going to let you kill her. Let go of me, you boozer!

Stop it!

They're at the bridge. Turn right.

I know.

Help, somebody! Help! Help! Help, somebody!

Leave me alone. Please help! Please help!

Let's go, get the ladders in there!

Somebody help me!

Come on, over here! Hurry it up there!

Bring it up this way!


Have we got two nets?

Hurry up! You're too slow! Let's go!

Please, Punjab, help me.

Help me, Punjab! Help!

Punjab, help.

You must hold on. I can't.

Buddha says a child without courage is like a night without stars. Come.

Back it in here.

Rooster, you reprobate.

Okay, let's clear the area over here!

Together at last Together forever We're tying a knot They never can sever I don't need sunshine now To turn my skies to blue I don't need anything but you

You've wrapped me around That cute little finger You've made life a song You've made me the singer And what's that bathtub tune You always

Yesterday was plain awful You can say that again Yesterday was plain awful But that's Not now That's then

I'm poor as a mouse I'm richer than Midas Oliver, marvelous! But nothing on earth Could ever divide us And if tomorrow I'm an apple seller too I don't need anything Anything, anything I don't need anything but

She's like the fizz in a Coke A buck when you're broke And more When woes and worries take hold Who gives them the old trap door I do not mind repeating We got Annie That 4th of July kid!

We got Annie I wish she were my kid We got Annie And she's got it all


"To Annie. With love."

I love you, Daddy Warbucks.

Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day away

Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day A Way

The sun 'll come out tomorrow Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow There 'll be sun Just thinking about tomorrow Clears away the cobwebs And the sorrow Till there's none When I'm stuck with a day That's gray and lonely I just stick out my chin And grin and say Oh, the sun 'II come out tomorrow So you gotta hang on till tomorrow Come what may Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day away Tomorrow, tomorrow I love ya, tomorrow You're only a day Away
