    Canadian novelist Lucy Maud Montgomery has her Anne of Green Gables novel brought to the screen in this three-part production. The first part of the story finds young Anne Shirley settling into her new life after arriving at the farm of her adoptive parents Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. The second part of the tale finds Anne transforming from a bright young adolescent to a well-established teacher. The third and final part of the story sees Anne moving to New York with her husband Gilbert, and then back to Avonlea, where Gilbert becomes a soldier and goes missing during wartime.

    Before I purchased this set I spent some time on the Internet looking for any kind of review for this item, to see whether or not, since I already owned the individual remastered special editions, this was worth the upgrade.

    But, there was nothing.

    So I took the plunge (it helped that the Costco here in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, had the set on sale for $47.99 Canadian, cheaper then even the official site was selling it for) and now, here's what you need to know.

    First off, the video presentation of the films is the exact same as the individual remastered special edition DVD from years back.

    Meaning it's watchable, but not the best picture quality out there.

    One of the reasons for this is that the first two mini series where filmed on 16mm film stock, thus creating a slightly grainy picture.

    I had hoped that since the extras on the discs where transported onto the fifth disc, that the freed up space would have allowed for better compression, and thus, better picture quality, but that is not the case.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Viewing for Fathers September 17, 2007
    Format:DVD
    I watched these on VHS with my family years ago. Back then my daughter, about ten or so, same age as Anne when we first see her, was reading the novels; renting the videos was a natural thing. I was reluctant to watch the first story--my tastes tend more toward gritty crime and action stuff--but I watched them with my wife, daughter, and 8-yr. old son. It did not take me long to get caught up in the enthralling story. Canadian actress Megan Follows with her flaming red hair, which she is initially so ashamed of, is absolutely perfect as Anne Shirley. I would say she was born to play that role. All of the characters and portrayals are so wonderful that you will be thoroughly entertained. The late and indescribably great Richard Farnsworth is his typical screen self: stoic, quiet, restrained, shy, honest, fun-loving, humble, self-sacrificing, hard-working, strong, venerable. And gents: isn't that a list of very admirable traits? What man would not want to be remembered in such a way? So there you have one reason why you, as a man and father, should watch this series: if you pattern yourself after Mr. Farnsworth in this film, you will be on the right track. I absolutely defy anyone, even the most macho guy in the world, to not gush with tears upon viewing the scene where Farnworth's character buys, and then presents the beautiful party dress to Anne.

    Another reason to watch this: you and your children will be seeing a solid and dignified life being put together before your eyes. Anne is an intelligent girl, but she understands the value of hard work. She loves to have fun, can be a bit contrary and capricious, but when the job needs to be done, she will do whatever it takes.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Among the Ten Best Ever Films! April 2, 2007
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    There was nothing like sitting with my children, and now with my grandchildren, and watching them become enraptured by the wonders of what I consider to be collectively "one" of the ten best films ever made. Yes, in terms of overall quality, the Anne of Green Gables Trilogy ranks up there with Ben Hur, Dances With Wolves, The Sound of Music, and the other classics. In fact, even at 69 years old, whenever I feel as if I need some inspiration, or I feel others I love do as well, into the DVD player goes Anne! As others have attested, one will never feel embarrassed by watching or having others watch these wonderful, wholly inspirational films.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality Video/Great Movies July 22, 2008
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    First of all, the actual movies and the actors are great. The series is very entertaining and tells a good story. It is suitable for the whole family.

    Now for the bad news, Sullivan Home Entertainment should be absolutely ashamed to sell such poor quality DVDs. I could have done better myself by copying video tapes and burning them to DVD. The video is very grainy like they made no attempt at all to remaster it. At times the audio does not match the video. Also, there is only a rudimentary menu system. You cannot jump to a particular scene like you can with almost all other DVDs on the market. In addition, the set I received had two of the three disks bad.

    The price of $59.99 is extremely high for what you get. Given the quality and other problems, it should be in the $5 bin at wal-mart!

    My advice is to rent the videos if you can and save a ton of money by not buying this junk.

    Is Anne Of Avonlea included in this Collection?
    Good question, as the description does not say what is on the 5 discs. I too would like to know if Anne of Avonlea is included before ordering.
