The mystery about Huston's $60m screen adaptation of the hit stage musical - an entirely ordinary and comparatively unspectacular musical fable in which perky orphan Annie (Quinn) wins the heart of mean millionaire Daddy Warbucks (Finney) - is how it could possibly have cost so much. The songs never take off into anything very much, the whole atmosphere (apart from the climax) is distinctly stagebound, and Huston merely reveals why he had never before in his long career been hired to make a musical.
