Storyline

Anne Shirley, now a schoolteacher, has begun writing stories and collecting rejection slips. She makes the acquaintance of a handsome, rich, bachelor, chases a cow, and wins (to her chagrin) a baking soda 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 girls school, where she meets opposition from one of the teachers, Miss Brooke, and the Pringle clan (one of whom is the rich, handsome bachelor). But while Anne enjoys the battle, and the friends she makes, she returns to Avonlea. Written by Kathy Li

Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

During Anne's first class at Kingsport Ladies College, she does not yet know Essie's name when Essie faints, from the horror, of Jen Pringle's snake, that was secretly put in Anne's desk, and has to leave the room. After Essie returns to the room, Anne refers to Essie by her first name. See more »

Good sequel
19 December 2001 | by (Newton, kansas) – See all my reviews

Most sequels loose their place very quickly in your mind, but not this one. While it departed from the book more, it was still very interesting, and for all the reasons the first one was a success, this one was as well. The scenery was beautiful and the acting was top notch. It just needed to have a little more zest in it like the first one.
