"Annie" is a good role model for girls

Well, in my opinion, "Annie" is a good role model for girls. She teaches them that they don't have to be beautiful to find happiness. For example, one of the reasons Charnin got rid of Kristen Vigard was that she was too pretty, and chose McArdle instead, who he thought could "survive on the streets". I thought that McArdle was very cute as Annie, and she was kinda pretty, but was by no means "drop-dead gorgeous". Granted, there were some Annies who followed her who were prettier, but in my opinion the majority of Annies have not been beautiful until the end. It seemed as though SO many girls in the 70s looked up to McArdle, wanting to be like her. So Annie was not only good in the sense that it brought a new message of hope, but it provided a good role model for girls. Sorry if I sound like I'm rambling happy.gif
