On the left, Wallace Beery, one of my faves.

And look how young Robert "Father Knows Best" Young looks.

I was wondering why this sounded familiar, and I realized that the title is reminiscent of Heart's Dreamboat Annie.

Saw the film last night and wish they had showed more of Seattle in it. Lots of shots of Seattle in the far background, but nothing of the Market or Pioneer Square.

"I had never before seen a movie or play with the name 'Annie' in the title."

You managed to avoid seeing "Annie Hall?"

random facts:

1) Marie Dressler died a year after Tugboat Annie was released.

2) according to imdb, the film was titled Alkohol (in Austria), Cuori in burasca (in Italy), and Hinaajan kannella (in Finland). Alkohol!
