Anne of Green Gables is a 1919 silent film directed by William Desmond Taylor. It is based on Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.

SynopsisEdit

Anne Shirley, an orphan, is taken into the lives of a generous farmer and his sister. She grows from an adventuresome young lass into a charming and much sought-after young lady.

PlotEdit

Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert adopt a lively child named Anne Shirley to live with them on their farm, Green Gables. Although Anne's whimsical nature is at first misunderstood by her unimaginative foster mother, the two come to love each other. Anne's antagonists are Mrs. Pie, the village gossip, and her malicious daughter Josie. Anne is involved in many mischievous adventures as a girl, but after her graduation, she becomes the village schoolmistress and saves her meager earnings for an operation that will restore her mother's failing sight. One of her pupils, Anthony Pie, claims that Anne beat him cruelly and broke his arm. Reverend Figtree, however, reveals to the angry townspeople that he saw Anthony break his arm when he fell from a haywagon. Exonerated, Anne marries her sweetheart, Gilbert Blythe.[1]
