Anne Shirley, now a schoolteacher, has begun writing stories and collecting rejection slips. She makes the acquaintance of a handsome, rich, bachelor, (jumping to a wrong conclusion, she and Diana chased down Rachel Lynde's cow, thinking it was Dolly) & immediately sold it to John Blythe. [When she realizes her fault, Anne & Marilla do a special visit to Rachel Lynde & her longtime husband, Thomas. During this visit, Thomas Lynde dies & Rachel Lynde became a widow!] and wins (to her chagrin) Rolling's Reliable baking soda (that was forged by Diana) company's writing contest. She acts as Diana's maid of honor, and refuses Gilbert Blythe's marriage proposal; which sends her to teach Kingsport Ladies' College, an exclusive all girl students' school, where she meets opposition from the principal, Miss Katherine Brooke, and the Pringle clan (one of whom is the rich, handsome bachelor). But while Anne won the numerous conflicts & battles, and the friends she makes, she returns to Avonlea. Written by
One of the first scenes shot with Dame Wendy Hiller was the picnic scene. She had just recently had an operation and while climbing into the buggy for the scene, her hip was displaced. Everyone was confused and nervous, wondering if she had had a heart attack. When Sullivan got over to her, she said, "Get me a whiskey, dear boy." Unfortunately, her humorous mood was short-lived and she wanted to return to England at once, without finishing the film. Kevin Sullivan had to work hard to get her to stay. See more »

Yes, he was the handsomest man in Kingsport. And he adored me. We consulted each other about absolutely everything. Mind you, we didn't always agree. No. He had his fits of temper. Oh, yes. And so did I.
Do you know what he did when I bought a daycap he didn't like?
I can't imagine.
He ate it. It gave him a terrible stomach pain. Yes, serves him right. He was so irked that I had neglected to consult him.
How could he go away and leave me alone and crippled like this? Dying...

I don't really understand the unsatisfaction. You had better blame him because of Anne 3. Poor Megan not even looks older than Anne could have been in 1915 and in 1919, but looks older than herSELF, also. She misses proper make-up first of all, proper lights during filming (2 or 3 scenes are only perfect) and last but not least good sentences. (Just see the page of memorable sentences! The first two parts have dozens, it only has three of them!) The story, well, it's even worse. So I must say, wether Anne 2 is true to the novels or not, it is a whole, compact story and is NOT boring, this sequel is only his own interpretation. After all, we've been waiting for the very last scene since Gilbert first called her 'Carrots'! Could you wait months for that moment? So I ask you: isn't that what we wanted?
