Great acting by all, but one...
20 January 2001 | by WardaSee all my reviews

First I'd like to say that the only drawback in this movie, is Ann Dusenberry as Amy...I didn't at all like the way she portrayed her character, she looked too old for the part and I felt she played her very coldly. With that said, I'd like to say that I've seen two other versions of Little Women, and this is the best one yet. This version's story line is closer to the book than the other two (1956 & 1994). All the actors did a wonderful job playing their roles...especially Susan Dey as Jo, Robert Young in the part of Mr Lawrence and Greer Garson as Aunt March.

For those of you who enjoy long period dramas, I'm sure you'll find this movie very entertaining!
