Pretty good considering....
5 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Studio One" did a two-part series of "Little Women" and "Jo's Story" is based on the latter portion of the book--the portion that is sometimes omitted in movie versions. This episode begin in 1868. Father is home from the war, one of the girls is married and Jo finds herself longing to leave Massachusetts and see the world. When she spoils an opportunity to go to Europe, she decides she wants to go to New York to become a writer. But there are a lot of difficulties--including a proposal, a sick sister and a very critical new friend who insists she can do better. All in all, well worth seeing BUT I would like to see part one and cannot find it! But, considering I am familiar with the story, it's not like I had a huge amount of difficulty getting into the show.

By the way, I noticed that another review really ragged on this show for being cheap. Well, considering this was filmed live on TV during the earliest years of the industry, I actually was surprised how good it looked! Really. You need to make some allowances for this--especially since Nancy Marchand and Kent Smith were so good in their leading roles.
