    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

      A multi-disc set featuring all three Anne of Green Gables films--the first Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, and Anne of Green Gables, the Continuing Story. A fantastic item for anyone who loves the Anne franchise. Video quality is great, love the extra features and packaging is very nice.
