Jo March and her sisters Meg, Beth, and Amy live in a happy family in Concord, Massachusetts. Jo yearns to be a writer, and through the course of the years, finds much within her own family to write about: the romance of Meg with the young tutor John Brooke, the tragic illness of gentle Beth, and Amy's marriage to Jo's bosom companion Laurie.

A Picturization of Louisa Alcott's Immortal Story
Did You Know?
This second incarnation of the Louisa May Alcott
story was expensively produced by World Film, an independent company founded by famed Broadway producer William A. Brady
(father of Alice Brady
); unable to find a suitable distributor, it sat on the shelf for nearly a year before a deal was struck with Paramount Pictures' Artcraft, a division Adolph Zukor
created exclusively for A-list product (lesser pictures were handed off under its Realart division), with the bulk of his mainstream productions released under the Paramount label. This three-tiered system was abolished within five years. See more
Although the film is set in the 1860s, a telegram shown reveals the name of the then current (1918) president of the Western Union telegraph company, Newcomb Carlton (b. 1869). See more
