Added DiffLines:

* JobSong: Downplayed for "You're Gonna Like it Here", which is about the inner workings of the Warbucks household in general, including the servants' jobs.


* CoolCar: A batch of 1920s and 1930s-era cars were used, obviously, but some of the standout rides were the 1929 Duesenberg Model J Murphy Dual Cowl Phaeton, which Warbucks himself drove in the film's climax, and a Du Pont Model G Town Car in which Annie and Grace were chauffeured in.



-->'''Annie''' (as she tears up the check): Mr. Warbucks will eat your livers!

Added DiffLines:

* NotInFrontOfTheKid: Warbucks apologises to Annie upon saying "Damn!" when the girl admits to not understanding what her soon-to-be-adoptive father was trying to point out:
-->'''Oliver''': It has occurred to me that no matter how many houses I have, how many Rembrandts, how many Duesenbergs, unless I have someone to share it with, I might as well be back in Liverpool broke. Annie, do you understand what I'm trying to say?
-->'''Annie''': Sure... Kind of.
-->'''Oliver''': Kind of?
-->'''Annie''': I guess not.
-->'''Oliver''': Damn! Oh, excuse me.


** That helicopter is quite advanced for 1933. Considering Warbucks calls it an "auto-copter" and describes it as though it's a new invention, it's possibly meant to be some kind of DieselPunk device. Perhaps his car phone[[note]](the first 80-pound units became available in the US in 1946)[[/note]] is a similar deal. One wonder what World War II will look like in the Annieverse.

[[note]]The first fully-controllable helicopter was the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focke-Wulf_Fw_61 Focke-Wulf Fw 61]], introduced in 1936 by Focke-Achgelis in [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi Germany]] and piloted by noted German aviatrix Hanna Reitsch in 1938.[[/note]] Perhaps his car phone[[note]](the first 80-pound units became available in the US in 1946)[[/note]] is a similar deal.

* AdaptedOut: Inverted. Punjab and the Asp, Warbuck's loyal bodyguards from the comic strips, were left out of the stage musical, but are major supporting characters in the film. Punjab even gets his own BigDamnHeroes moment during the climax.

** The orphans getting stuffed into the closet by the bad guys. They manage to escape, but they end up running off into the city in the dead of the night ''by themselves'' in order to find Warbucks's mansion.

* RunningGag: Miss Hannigan getting her [[AgonyOfDeFeet foot stepped on]] by one of the orphans. It eventually turns into ChekhovsGag when Annie uses this tactic to escape Hannigan after she, Rooster, and Lily kidnap her.

Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: Rooster and Miss Hannigan.

to:

* LargeHam: Rooster and Rooster, Miss Hannigan.Hannigan and Warbucks.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: Kind of an unusual example. President Roosevelt is played by Edward Herrmann, who had previously gotten Emmy nominations for playing FDR in a pair of '70s made-for-TV biopics.
** Herrmann also voiced FDR in the Ken Burns' documentary about the Roosevelt family shortly before his death.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterAsHimself: The opening credits for the film has Bingo, an [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otterhound otterhound]] playing the role of Annie's CanineCompanion, credited as "Sandy as himself".


* OhCrap: Warbucks when he realizes that Annie's parents are actually con-artists.

* WouldntHurtAChild: Miss Hannigan, on the other hand, may threaten the lives of her orphans, but [[EvenEvilHasStandards she would never really hurt them in any way despite her hatred of them]], and Rooster menacing Annie is a step too far for her.

Added DiffLines:

* ObviousStuntDouble: An adult stunt double was used in place of Aileen during the scene where her character is climbing a bridge in order to escape from Rooster and Hannigan. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] for fairly obvious reasons.

Added DiffLines:

* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: On top of the title character being put into a perilous situation, a sequence of animal cruelty and Annie subsequently beating up fellow child urchins in defense of a stray dog, the words "damn" were uttered a few times in the film, earning it a PG.
