Anne of Green Gables: A New Beginning (CA)
Anne, now a middle-aged woman, is troubled by recent events in her life. Her husband, Gilbert, has been killed overseas as a medical doctor during World War II. Her two daughters are preoccupied with their own young families and her adopted son Dominic has yet to return from the war. When a long-hidden secret is discovered under the floorboards at Green Gables, Anne retreats into her memories...
Known as the girl with big red curls and weak ankles, Shirley MacLaine was born Shirley MacLean Beaty ...
Wealthy business woman and overseer of the busy industrial town of Marysville, Amelia Thomas is the quintessence of deportment. She is also “hard-as-nails”. Strong-willed and unskilled at listening to others has made her superb at holding onto the reins of a seemingly prosperous but turbulent company town. As owner of the Thomas Lumber Mill, Amelia finds herself embroiled in a battle with a difficult bank and unhappy mill workers. She tries to retain the air of a concerned grandmother when she takes in her daughter-in-law Louisa and her three grand-children who have fled their home. Although reluctant at first to accept the young ‘heathen’ Anne Shirley, she slowly develops a close relationship with the girl. The attachment is jeopardized when Anne’s father intervenes, threatening Amelia’s very existence. Anne is forced to choose between loyalty to a father she neither knows nor respects, and the “kindred spirit” in Amelia whom Anne perceives as her one chance at true happiness.
