It's September, 1915. Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe have been engaged for some time, but life seems to always get in the way of them actually getting married. They eventually want to resettle back in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island, despite Green Gables' dilapidated condition and the fact that they do not own it. But their latest detour takes them to New York City as Gilbert's tenure at Bellevue Hospital has been extended. Anne, who has resisted moving to New York City in the past with him, decides to go this time. While pursuing her writing career, she gets a job as a junior editor at Winfield Publishing, where she meets the company's star writer, Jack Garrison, who aspires to write more serious works than the pulp fiction he is required to churn out for Winfield. But not only affecting Anne and Gilbert's life but that of everyone they know, World War I takes hold and further complicates matters. Their respective war efforts separate the couple. As Anne tries to reconnect with ... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


The plot of this film bears little resemblance to the storylines of any of the "Anne" source books because of legal disputes that were at the time ongoing between Kevin Sullivan and the heirs of Anne author Lucy Maud Montgomery. Ultimately, Canadian courts agreed with the heirs that Sullivan had withheld from the heirs contractually promised profits from the first two films in the series (Anne of Green Gables (1985) and Anne of Avonlea (1987)), and the courts also found groundless Sullivan's $55-million suit against the heirs.

When Anne and Gil reunite, we see that Gil is a lot older than the last time we saw him. His hair is much more gray and his face has aged. However, in the next scene he is no longer aged and his hair is no longer gray. This can be explained in the commentary as the director and producer state that they shot the scene several months prior to the scene before. See more »


Anne Shirley: [reading aloud to herself] 'Forever Into Eternity' by Anne Shirley.
Jack Garrison Jr.: You'll jinx yourself with titles like that, Miss Shirley.

Jack Garrison Jr.: Oh, don't be embarrassed. Half the people in this building are writing books on their lunch hour.
Anne Shirley: Y-y-you are, aren't you?
Jack Garrison Jr.: Jack Garrison.
Anne Shirley: It's a pleasure to meet you. All Mr.Owen ever talks about is your latest manuscript. 'Real page turner' according to him.

Not very accurate
7 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have read all the books except for Rilla of Ingleside, which I have plans to read within the week! None of the events in this movie reflects any events that occurred in the books. While the first two films did not match up with the books tit for tat, the main gist of the stories was told. I really loved the Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea, but I was extremely disappointed with The Continuing Story. It completely misrepresents the spirit of Ms. Montgomery's works. Where are Anne and Gilbert Blythe, the married couple? Where are all the children - the tragic loss of their firstborn and the renewal of hope with the births of the other children? Where is Ingleside? Where are Aunt Jo's dogs Gog and Magog? Why do we not meet the Captain Joe the lighthouse keeper? Movies that depict literature should not completely disregard what was written in that literature. But that is what happened in this movie. It is as if the screenwriters stole Ms. Montgomery's characters and used them in a completely different story!
