Anne of Green Gables (23-Nov-1934)|
Director: George Nichols, Jr.
Writer: Sam Mintz
From novel: Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Producer: Kenneth MacGowan

Set in 1919, a spinster and her middle-aged brother agree to adopt a boy from a faraway orphanage to help with their farmwork, but the Cuthberts unexpectedly find themselves instead caring for 14-year-old Anne, "Carrot Top." Under their care Anne attends school, matures, and attracts the attention of handsome Tom Brown. Decent B-level production, the pacing rushed in the second half.

Review by anonymous (posted on 24-Jun-2005)
If you are a true "kindred
spirit" you can't help but love this old show. In some places it is a
bit different from the books and characters differ from the later movie
starring Megan Follows. All actors in the movie are charming with the
exception of the Marilla character. I didn't think she fit the role at
all. If you enjoy the books or the later version starring Megan
Follows, you will enjoy this movie. Just be ready for a few characters
to be a little different.(For instance they combined Mrs. Lynde and
Mrs. Barry) I give it a thumbs up for a classic movie!
Do you know something we don't?
