Synopsis


Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story
Megan Follows, who literally grew up before the viewers' eyes as star of the Canadian TV series Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea, returns to the role of Lucy Maud Montgomery's plucky Canadian lass Anne Shirley in this four-hour TV miniseries. In the second decade of the 20th century, all grown up and a professional schoolteacher, Anne returns to Prince Edward Island after the death of her mentor, Marilla Cutherbert (played by the late Coleen Dewhurst in stock-footage flashbacks). Soon thereafter, Anne heads to New York City, intending to marry her physician fiancé, Gilbert Blythe (Jonathan Crombie), and, hopefully, to find success as an author. Alas, Anne's first manuscript is stolen by charming scoundral, Jack Garrison Jr. (Cameron Daddo), while Gilbert is defeated by the internal politicking and red tape of a big-city hospital. The couple is about to relocate to their native Canada when WWI breaks out, whereupon Gilbert dutifully signs up for military service. When word arrives that Gilbert is missing in action, Anne courageously heads off to wartorn France in hopes of finding her husband -- only to become mixed up in an espionage plot that also involves the redoubtable Jack Garrison. Originally telecast in Canada beginning March 5, 2000, Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story was seen in the United States courtesy of PBS on July 23 and 30, 2000. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Anne of Green Gables
Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel Anne of Green Gables, previously filmed in 1934, was afforded a TV-movie treatment in 1985. Megan Follows stars as 13-year-old Anne Shirley, an orphan girl sent to live with a foster family on Canada's Prince Edward Island. Though she has great difficulty controlling her temper, impulsiveness and vivid imagination, Anne eventually wins over her new guardians, domineering Marilla Cuthbert (Colleen Dewhurst) and Marilla's shy brother Matthew (Richard Farnsworth). Anne's secondary adventures concern her "bosom friend" Diana (Schuyler Grant) and her supposed enemy Gilbert Blythe (Jonathan Crombie). Anne of Green Gables was offered on American television as a 3-part presentation on PBS' Wonderworks; it aired from February 17 through March 3, 1986. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel
In this sequel to Anne of Green Gables, Megan Follows plays 18-year-old Anne Shirley, who has grown up on a Canadian farm. Now Anne is a teacher, dedicated to her profession but still hoping to find the man of her dreams. She eventually teaches at a remote schoolhouse on Prince Edward Island. The screenplay is based not only on Anne of Avonlea but two other Montgomery books, Anne of Windy Poplars (previously filmed in 1940) and Anne of the Island. This four-hour feature version of Anne of Avonlea was originally telecast in two parts. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    This movie is fantastic...I have been waiting for years for the trilogy to be out on DVD so that I can purchase it...sure brings back memories, let me tell you Megan Follows is superb as the vivacious yet stubborn red head...I can't imagine anyone else playing that role and Jonathan Crombie as the handsome Gilbert Blythe...I remember when I first saw this movie with my sister on the Disney Channel we were constantly fighting over who had the biggest crush on Gilbert Blythe... this movie has become one of my favorite movies of all time...whoever purchases this trilogy will not be disappointed at all...the actors are superb and to have Miss Cadberry played by Megan Follows real mother is like a dream.. what a dream cast of actors Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! it is well worth it, and it would make a wonderful gift.

    The DVD's are great, I only had the first 2 on VHS which will be unplayable as age takes it's toll, and VHS players become obsolete. I wanted to secure these Wonderful Stories for years after I am gone. How better to do that than have them on DVD. I am very happy with my purchase, and thankful that Best Buy made this possible.

    This is probably my favorite movie of all time. This is a wonderful story about a young orphan who is sent to live with a couple who thought they were getting a boy to help with the farm. The couple are a middle-aged brother and sister. The scenery is beautiful and the actors are great.
