A Korean movie, based on
the manga, got indeed shot in 1981! When I say "based", it would
rather be "inspired", and more specifically "slightly inspired"
as so many improbabilities abound! Nevertheless, for the
enjoyment of our zygomatic muscles, let's have a look at this
funny masterpiece that will difinitely stay in the Candy Candy

THE MOVIE DATA SHEET
Izawa Man (the author of "Georgie", but
after contacting him, he said that had never heard about
this movie... :-pp
Color movie based on the Japanese anime
Candy's best friend, Annie, is adopted and goes far from
the orphenage. Candy writes letters to her and seven
years elapsed before she receives an answer from Annie.
She asks her to stop writing to her because she wants to
forget that she grew up in an orphenage. Meanwhile,
Candy is hired in the service of a rich business man.
She falls in love with a same-aged boy, in poor health,
and who finally dies. Candy leaves to study in a College
run by nuns. Annie is there too, ready to torment her
