Anne of Windy Poplars is a 1940 black-and-white film starring Anne Shirley as Anne Shirley. It's the sequel to 1934 film Anne of Green Gables and is based on Anne of Windy Poplars, novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
Anne Shirley, having recently got engaged to her childhood sweetheart Gilbert Blythe, takes a teaching position in a prestigious school far from her home on Prince Edward Island. While she is quickly accepted by her host family, the rest of the town, headed by the clannish Pringle family, refuses to accept her, on the orders of the head of the Pringle tribe, Ernestine Pringle.
Behind the scenes
- Anne of Windy Poplars was made two years before Lucy Maud Montgomery's death, but there is nothing in her journals or correspondence which suggests that she saw it. There are diary entries which relate to the pre-production. These indicate that Montgomery was apprehensive about the film's treatment of the novel.
