Synopsis

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.

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.
