I loved this
27 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I absolutely cannot believe this masterpiece is lost! I remember it so clearly and often wondered if it was going to be repeated... apparently not, worst luck.

For me this is the definitive version, infinitely superior to the Canadian version of (many) years later. Matthew's quiet shyness, Mrs Lynde's nosiness, Marilla's brusqueness.. and Anne... portrayed by Kim Braden with all the dreamy luminosity so evident in the books, and with none of the relentless cheesiness that often comes across in English adaptations of New World literature of this period. Kim managed to be perfectly believable as a girl far younger than herself, and inhabited Anne in a way no other actress could have done. It was easy to believe in her winning charisma and unusual beauty. This adaptation marked a seminal moment in my childhood, and every episode was a filled with joy and sorrow and often cringing embarrassment as the audience learned, along with Anne, the consequences of Pride, Vanity, Anger, Greed, Covetousness etc. etc. gently teaching as we laughed and cried along with our flawed, but wonderful heroine.

Can it REALLY be lost?

Please, someone in TV land, check your shed, your office cabinet, the attic.... Rediscover this shining and glorious work, I beg you!
