Over 35 Years Later, Is It Still A Hard-Knock Life For Little Orphan Annie?

- Page 1

Growing up, the movie Annie was one of my all-time favorites. As a little girl with red curly hair, I was just so excited to see someone who looked like me in a movie! Not only that, but the story and music were enough to warm hearts all over the world.

The original movie came out in 1982, based off the comic strip in 1924 and the Broadway musical in 1977.

Aileen Quinn, who played little orphan Annie, instantly became a household favorite with her bright personality and even brighter hair. She was only 11 when the movie came out, but her performance was one of the ages.

Who HASN'T started singing "Tomorrow" every now and then?

Now, over 35 years later, Aileen Quinn looks completely different, but she's still rocking her signature red locks!

But suddenly, his career seemed to get a little bit out of control. The quality of the movies wasn't up to snuff. There were no more hits like George of the Jungle or The Mummy, instead we

Celebrate Friday The 13th At Camp Crystal Lake By Spending The Night And (Probably) Not Dying

There's another Friday the 13th (the date, not the movie) coming up in April, so it's time to start planning how to celebrate the second spookiest day of the year. Luckily, Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco has the perfect solution.The New Jersey campground was the setting for "Camp Crystal Lake" in the original 1980 Friday the 13th.
