               About Us


- Apple Annie -

She is that little lady in the neighborhood of New York City who sold apples 
for a penny while watching over the children. During hard times their parents were either in food lines, looking for work or if they were lucky working. 
These children grew up never forgetting their Apple Annie and how she 
watched over and took care of them. Nor could they forget the wonderful 
pies she would occasionally bake for them. If you look through our 
restaurant you will find an orginial print copy dating to 1881 of Apple Annie 
and some of her children.

In the early 1900s Damon Runyon wrote her orginial story "Madame 
LaGimp." Later it was made into the orginial movie "Lady for a Day" (1933) starring May Robson and Warren William. It was then followed by the sequel "Lady by Choice" (1934) starring May Robson and Carole Lombard. In the
film, a dancer hires an old bag lady to pose as her mother.

The most famous remake was produced in 1961 "Pocket Full of Miracles" starring Betty Davis as Apple Annie with Glen Ford and Peter Falk. This 
was also the debut of Ann Margaret as Apple Annie's daughter who had
been raised in Spain and returns to New York to wed the Duke of Spain.

This is the movie that inspired Irwin Smith (Smitty) to create the restaurant's Apple Annie's theme. He opened the first Apple Annie's in Visalia, California
in 1983.

Today, we operate Apple Annie's Restaurant in Tulare, California. Each day
we open our doors and try to treat you as if we have invited you into our 
homes. We hope you enjoy your visit and come back to see us again.

Thank you from all of us
