Storyline

It's September, 1915. Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe have been engaged for some time, but life seems to always get in the way of them actually getting married. They eventually want to resettle back in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island, despite Green Gables' dilapidated condition and the fact that they do not own it. But their latest detour takes them to New York City as Gilbert's tenure at Bellevue Hospital has been extended. Anne, who has resisted moving to New York City in the past with him, decides to go this time. While pursuing her writing career, she gets a job as a junior editor at Winfield Publishing, where she meets the company's star writer, Jack Garrison, who aspires to write more serious works than the pulp fiction he is required to churn out for Winfield. But not only affecting Anne and Gilbert's life but that of everyone they know, World War I takes hold and further complicates matters. Their respective war efforts separate the couple. As Anne tries to reconnect with ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

This is the first film in the series not to be based on anything actually written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Though it could be said to be very loosely based on the 8th Anne novel "Rilla of Ingleside" about Anne and Gilbert's youngest child, Rilla, and her time during WWI. See more »

Goofs

(at around 54 mins) When Gil is discussing whether or not the pregnant lady should be admitted, Dr. Powell grabs Gil's arm to further discuss the schedule. When it goes back to that shot, Dr. Powell is holding Gil's jacket. See more »

Quotes

Jack Garrison Jr.: No, true success requires passion and a vision. Not just dollars and sense, Mr. Owen.

Alternate Versions

The 2011 wide-screen 'Restoration Edition' DVD version uses new, re-created visual effects and matte shots. 'Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story' had many visual effects and matte shots that were originally created in standard definition. Each of these sequences had to be recreated using original green screen elements and embellishing them with completely new matte work. See more »

Anne was the mother of five in World 1
20 November 2004 | by Xeresa6See all my reviews

I've read all the Anne books! I really dislike it when they take a beloved character, and completely ignore all the written material on said character.

It was Anne's three sons who fought in WW1, and you can find the story in Lucy Maud Montgomery's book entitled "Rilla of Ingleside" The story of the terrible effects of the war is seen through the eyes of Anne's youngest child, Marilla, who is fifteen at the start of the war in 1914.

It is a heart-felt story. One of Anne's younger sons dies in France, but it is also a story of hope and faith and the foibles of a small community facing a situation outside the small island they grew up on.

Why they didn't use that story, or indeed, the previous story where Anne is married and starts a new life on her beloved island with Gilbert I'll never know!It often seems to me that screenwriters don't read, or do research when dealing with literary subjects!

I'm sorry that they didn't give Megan Fellows better material. She is a fine young actress and deserves better. Ps: Diana's husband Fred Wright was a pleasant, down-to-earth farmer in the Anne books.
