Little Women  Dec 12, 2007
I enjoyed this version of Little Women because it adhered very closely to the novel. I found the casting believable and hence excellent choices. It is always good to see how each character is presented and I was happy with this - Although it is not my favorite rendition.
At last, and about time, too!  Nov 11, 2007
I would actually rate this a four and a half.

It is testament to the excellence of a production that it stays with you decades after you've seen it. Such it was for me with this adaptation of a novel that was my second Bible growing up.

I completely understand that the time constraints for screen versions necessitate condensing, combining, deleting, and chronologically switching around, scenes as they appear in the original work; therefore, these things don't bother me as long as they are done smoothly and do nothing to mar the basic plot, which is the case in this production.

Susan Dey has become my favorite Jo. She's very attractive, but still manages to convey some of Jo's unconventional attributes - her angularity, tomboyishness, and discomfort with her own looks. (And she's the right height--the only thing that bothers me about Winona Ryder's Jo is that she's too small. Alcott made much of Jo's long-limbed tallness; it's the main reason for her physical awkwardness.) Dey is also funny -- her very first scene made me guffaw -- as well as poignant. Meredith Baxter Birney is appropriately pretty, with the small touches of vanity that go with Meg's good looks. Eve Plumb as Beth is surprisingly effective in her final scene at the seaside, portraying the character's unique combination of gentleness and deep spiritual strength. Ann Dusenberry's Amy is perhaps the least satisfying of the sisters. Amy is a little Miss Priss, but she is not a spoiled brat - her wise and prudent mother wouldn't allow that; Dusenberry is a bit too bratty, and her pre-teen antics unfortunately call to mind an over-grown, petulant Shirley Temple.

Richard Gilliland's Laurie seems too modern, and too all-American for a character who was reared and educated in Europe; also I quibble with many of the colloquial expressions he is made to say in the script, which don't sound "period". Cliff Potts is an good Brooke, upright without being pompous.

It's wonderful to see Greer Garson in the role of Aunt March. Hers is no mere crusty, bad-humored fossil of a woman, but an elegantly over-blown product of her era and upbringing, with foreshadowings of Wilde's Lady Bracknell. Garson gives us the impression that, handsome though she may have been as a girl, Aunt March never married because no man could live up to her rigid standards. Robert Young and Dorothy McGuire perform their roles with intelligence and dignity. Even William Shatner's customary mannered and hammy style somehow works for Professor Bhaer, but his German accent is anything but convincing.

These small objections keep me from giving this adaptation a five, but it is highly enjoyable and satisfying, well worth purchasing and recommending to others.
Not As Good As I Remembered  Nov 3, 2007
I remember watching this on TV and thinking how good it was. I was disappointed when I rewatched it. It's ok, but the newer versions and especially the older (B&W) versions are much better.
1978 Little Women  Nov 3, 2007
I have four versions of "Little Women", all of the American versions, and if I had to rate each of them in order 1 to 4, I would rate them just as they came out. The first is by all means still the best! This one rates third to me, but unlike the last one with Winona Ryder, I really like this one. I remember seeing this one when it aired on television as a mini-series, I really enjoyed it, and I like the cast, but I'm not real crazy about Merideth Baxter Berney as Meg. I like her as an actress, just not in this role, she's pale compared to the first two. My major complaint about the more recent ones is that the directors don't really seem to understand the era the book is about, just like the passage of time, they are further removed, they get a little contemporary. As I mentioned, I don't like the Ryder version, it has nothing to do with her, I just don't like the directing, it seems like all the actors just stand around waiting for someone to give them their next line, it doesn't flow. This one lacks a little in flow as well, but not that bad, but there are a lot of elements missing here from the earlier versions, particularly the play, and you also never see Jo "burn her frocks", nice little details a good director throws in. This one gets a little comtemporary, but overall it is well cast and good, just not great. All just my opinion! By the way, Susan Dey is a great Jo!
Little Women almost as close as the book itself!  Nov 2, 2007
This version of Little women is the closest to the actual book of all the rest. Kate Hepburns version is the best movie version, June Allyson's is possibly the worst in terms of cast. This version takes its time and explores the March families relationships. This version also includes Jo and Beth's trip to the seaside for Bethy's health. All other versions skip over this small but important scene. The series is well cast, with not a bit of "PC" propaganda in sight. Thank heavens! I would definately recommend this version of "Little Women" to all who loved the book. And I agree anyone who does not weep when Beth dies is heartless!
