Anne Of Green Gables


(out of 5)

First notable talkie version of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s popular novel isn’t as rich and enjoyable as Kevin Sullivan’s 1985 miniseries with Megan Follows, but benefits from the earnest performance by  in the role of…Anne Shirley (how’s that for studio publicity!)  Little Anne is an orphan who is brought to Green Gables by mistake after Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert request a friend to acquire for them a young boy to help with chores on the farm. Once the error is revealed, they find the girl too amiable and loving to send back, and so keep her on as their own.  Good acting and a satisfying sense of time and place, though nothing unforgettable.
