I was so obsessed with Annie and Andrea, I actually, pathetically, remember almost everything I ever read or saw about her. She talked about how Jodie Foster's choice to play a teenage prostitute in taxi driver was "immoral"and she would never want her name and Jodie'sto be in the same sentence, that Tatum's acting was "wooden and self conscious" and that Linda Blair made boneheaded movie choices. I remember thinking at the time that it was strangely candid for someone in the spotlight. Also, I clearly remember Reid Shelton saying very negative things about her behavior in Annie. I saw Andrea in 1977 and thought she was spectacular in every way. I do believe she was raised as "show biz" kid and was probably very difficult and self centered. But you're right, No on should take Jackie Coogan's word on anything.
