A made-for-TV musical that features a creepily shaven-headed Victor Garber (yeah, the
chap), Kathy Bates channelling Miss Trunchbull as the autocratic Miss Hannigan and Alicia Morton as Annie.
The Original We Didn't Know About:
In this instance, we actually have heard of the original. The 1982 musical was directed by John Huston and prompted all 11-year-old girls to die their hair a shocking orangey-red. Aileen Quinn as Annie won the Razzie award for Worst Supporting Actress.
What we didn't know was that had been remade. How did this one get by us?
In the ’99 version, Grace gets an African-American makeover courtesy of Audra McDonald, Sandy gets his own sublot and, most shocking of all, Annie gets straight hair. The audacity!
