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

Trivia

For the cow scene in which Anne and Diana fall into the mud, the costume department made four dresses. However, Megan Follows did the stunt in one take, and the others were not needed. See more »

Goofs

During Anne's first class at Kingsport we see Emmeline Harris leave the room to take Essie to the ladies room. However, we see her sitting at her desk as Jen Pringle returns to her desk after she receives the strap. Moments later after the bell rings we see Emmeline and Essie have re-entered the class, almost as if Jen's snake and the mayhem it caused was deleted. See more »

Quotes

Diana Barry: Myra Gillis had 37 doilies when she got married, and I'm determined to have AT LEAST as many as she had.
Anne Shirley: I suppose it would be impossible to keep house with only 36 doilies. But I assure you, Mr. Wright, Diana will be the sweetest little homemaker in the world... so long as you can afford to let her keep up with the Gillises.

Jonathan Crombie is very convincing!
27 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have fallen in love with the entire Anne of Green Gables movies and books! All of the movies are my favorite in the world. My favorite actor in the movie was Jonathan Crombie. He is very talented and had the perfect qualifications to play Gilbert Blythe. Megan Follows made the perfect Anne as well. Every time I read the books, I visualize them as the real Anne and Gilbert. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes clean, wholesome movies with a little adventure mixed in with it. I would also recommend you to read the entire collection of Anne of Green Gables books. There not just for children. I'm 14 but I know adults that are obsessed with the story! This is a charming movie and I watch all of them again and again. So if you are a fan of mischief, adventure, and a little romance, watch this movie. You won't be disappointed!
