Plot Summary

The March sisters - Jo (June Allyson), Beth (Margaret O'Brien), Amy (Dame Elizabeth Taylor), and Meg (Janet Leigh) - struggle to make ends meet in their New England household while their father is away fighting in the Civil War. Despite harsh times, they cling to optimism, often with neighbor Laurie (Peter Lawford) as a companion. As they mature, they face burgeoning ambitions and relationships, as well as tragedy, all the while maintaining their unbreakable bond. Written by Jwelch5742

Trivia All of the sisters (June Allyson, Margaret O'Brien, Dame Elizabeth Taylor, and Janet Leigh) reportedly got along terrifically, like a real sorority. Allyson, who was several years older than most of her co-stars, managed to relate to the younger women and form strong bonds with them. See more »
