Well, my opinion of this film is much higher than the previous poster. Having been raised on the book and read it numerous times this version of the story is one of my favorites. The script writers took liberties but nothing that would ruin Alcotts famous work of literature. When I original heard the cast list I was devastated by the "little women." But after watching it I feel all of the cast nailed the characters with gusto. Susan Dey is the ultimate Jo in my book. She surprised me with her acting and how much she became the character. The rest of the cast is good as well but I must applaud Ms Dey for her efforts. She made me cry again. The television series that followed wasn't as terrible as previous poster led to believe. That was the era of making a point of being good and telling morals to stories. That was one of Jo Marchs downfalls to her writing, always a moral. Same with Alcott she seemed to be the embodiment of JO. I have read ALL of her works. Enjoy
