Enjoyed it more than the first
Not great for those spoiled by the Sullivan versions but not bad either. Like Sullivan's, this completely bypasses "Anne of the Island" and bases the movie on "Anne of Windy Poplars/Willows". Neither movie version was faithful to that book.

Anne takes a teaching job in a town controlled by the powerful Pringle clan. Of course, she changes their bitter attitudes and finds some kindred spirits. There are some interesting male and female characters and the actress who plays Anne Shirley is adequate but not charismatic. However, her character/acting is more likable than first time round in "Anne of Green Gables" (1934).

As expected, there isn't much of Gilbert. I believe he's played by a different actor. This Gilbert is handsomer but duller.

I found this more watchable, and better quality, than its predecessor but won't be buying this one (I caught it on TV).
