No, I did not like that they turned "Tomorrow" into a throw-away song. It could have been fantastic up on a big screen. I wasn't crazy about Albert Finney as Warbucks, thought that Ann Reinking was perhaps a bit too old to play Grace, and thought the role of Annie could have been played by a stronger singer and actress.
I also thought Ray Stark (the Producer) was out of his mind for allowing John Huston to direct the film. He was way out of his comfort zone and had no affection for the show.
