My favorite film version of this book
12 July 2001 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Even though I haven't seen this movie in years, I still think it is the best version of Little Women I've ever seen, particularly for a TV movie. It was very well cast, was fairly faithful to the book, and contained good performances. Susan Dey and Meredith Baxter were excellent in their roles as Jo and Meg, and Robert Young, Dorothy McGuire and Greer Garson gave it class; an added extra is William Shatner as Prof. Bhaer. The care taken with costumes and other period details is obvious. It is an excellent production, and I highly recommend this version to anyone who has enjoyed the book. The other film versions are fine, too, but this one deserves more attention. What I don't understand is why this wonderful family film has not been made widely available to the public on video or DVD.
