Behind the scenesEdit

  • 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.

    • Did L.M Montgomery ever see the 1940 Anne of Windy Poplars/Willows film? We know she saw the earlier 1919 and 1934 films as she refers to ...
    • I think she was so disappointed because of 1919 and 1934 films that she didn't want to see another film. :)  I'm just kidding....
