TV Mini-Series Recommendation: Anne of Green Gables (1985)

There are certain TV movies and movies that have sentimental value for me. Anne of Green Gables is one of them. I watched this TV mini-series many times as well as the two that came after. I’ve never been to Canada, but I sure would love to visit Prince Edward Island. The series “Anne of Green Gables” is written by L.M. Montgomery. The first book was published in 1908 and there are nine novels total in the series. As the book version, the adaptation of Anne of Green Gables centers around an orphan with red hair. She is adopted by a brother and sister duo, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. From day one, they find Anne endearing but also opiniated, stubborn, and wickedly intelligent. She willingly goes out of her way to prove herself to her classmates, often those she sees as enemies, including Gilbert Blythe. Megan Follows portrays Anne perfectly as does Colleen Dewhurst as Marilla Cuthbert and Richard Farnsworth as Matthew Cuthbert. There’s a kind of innocence to the story and while it’s rated TV-G, it’s one I could watch again and again and again. There’s also two more TV sequels as well (1987 and 2000).

I rate Anne of Green Gables Four Fingers and One Thumb at 100%.
