Anne of Green Gables (1934) Rated NR

A teenage girl is adopted by a couple of elderly siblings on Prince Edward Island, Canada. Starring  Anne Shirley, Tom Brown, and O.P. Heggie.

This is a wonderful telling of the classic story by  Lucy Maud Montgomery. The actress Anne Shirley actually changed her name from Dawn O’Day after the release of the film. Shirley is a great Anne of Green Gables. She is a chatty, intense, heartwarming girl with a fiery temper. Then you have Helen Westley as Marilla Cuthbert – a stern but loving sister who learns to welcome the precocious child. Heggie plays the quiet brother Cuthbert; it was a treat to watch him love on Anne. I think the film does a wonderful job of showing how much Anne would go into her own world. This film brings Anne’s story to life and stays true to Montgomery’s book. It’s worth a watch.
