Film Versions of Daddy-Long-Legs

First Film Version

From Wikipedia, I learn that there are at least eight film (plus TV) versions of Daddy-Long-Legs:
Daddy-Long-Legs with Mary Pickford (1919)

Daddy Long Legs with Janet Gaynor (1931)

Curly Top with Shirley Temple (1935)

Daddy Long Legs Dutch film (1938)

Daddy Long Legs with Leslie Caron (1955)

Daddy-Long-Legs Japanese musical anime TV special with YĆ«ko Tanaka (1979)

My Daddy Long Legs Japanese anime TV series (1990)

Daddy-Long-Legs Korean film (2005)
Something about the premise of this story - poor orphan girl, rich, anonymous benefactor - catches the attention of the world.

Daddy Long Legs sounds like a bottomless reservoir of material. I encourage you to write a sequel with that aspect in mind... Characters running back and forth between sequels, forever, meanwhile touring through Russian literature and Korean geography. I imagine up "North" Un the boy wonder could be big a fan of Daddy Long Legs sequels, and watches them all the time in stadiums full of quiet crowds waiting for him to lead the clapping and the laughing when the good parts flash across the screen.
