Anne of Green Gables all started in 1908 when Lucy Maud Montgomery published the first book titled Anne of Green Gables, followed by a series that included 10 more books. The first movie was in 1919 titled Anne of Green Gables, a silent movie and was followed by 3 more movies, 12 television movies and 6 television series.
This Thanksgiving, which is November 24, 2016, PBS will air the Anne of Green Gables movie, based on the 1908 book of the same name by Lucy Maud Montgomery. The PBS movie will star Ella Ballentine as Anne Shirley, Martin Sheen as Matthew Cuthbert and Sara Botsford as Marilla Cuthbert. The movie was first produced in Canada and aired in Canada back on February 15, 2016.
This PBS movie tells the story of Anne Shirley, an active 11-year-old girl who is an orphan. She is sent to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. However, the Cuthbert’s wanted to adopt a boy so he could help with chores around their farm. Now, Anne has to learn to navigate through her new home and new surroundings.
I love movie, television and book quotes so here are some quotes from the 1908 book and the 1985 television movie.
