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 »
When Anne and Diana are in the cabbage field trying to catch the Jersey cow, it is supposedly in the early- to late-morning. However, in one shot, you can see the sun setting behind them and hear the evening crickets in the woods. See more »
Why do people have to grow up and marry, change?
Oh, you'd change. If someone ever admitted that they were head over heels for you, you'd be swept off your feet in a moment.
I would not, and I defy anyone who would try and make me change.
Oh, you do?

I LOVE this movie. Meagan Follows is again wonderful as Anne Shirley - the red-headed orphan girl taken in by Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. Pet Peeve: When the sequel originally aired on Canadian television (to my knowledge the first place it aired) it was titled "Anne Of Green Gables:The Sequel". Isn't that the way it should be listed instead of "Anne Of Avonlea"? Yes, it is listed as such in the "also known as" list of titles but it's just not the same thing. Okay, that aside, if you haven't seen this movie and you like classy, smart, beautiful movies - this is the one to watch!
