Description

Betty Hutton replaced an ailing Judy Garland and made the part of Annie her own with an assist from Howard Keel (making his movie debut) as the handsome sharpshooter Frank Butler. Audiences still applaud after every musical number and the songs “Anything You Can Do”, “The Girl That I Marry”, “Got the Sun in the Morning”, “Doin’ What Comes Naturally”, and “There’s No Business Like Show Business” have become standards.

One of the finest examples of the 3-Strip Technicolor process, all theatrical prints were pulled from circulation in 1973 due to an unresolved rights dispute. Miles Kreuger, Author and President of The Institute of the American Musical will host the 8 pm screening and detail the campaign to bring this classic back to the big screen.

Walt Disney’s rambunctious Donald Duck battles his nephew’s Huey, Dewey and Louie in the big screen Technicolor cartoon Straight Shooters (1947).
