5.0 out of 5 stars At Last.... September 14, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At last The TV Mini Serize of Little Women is finally available here in the USA and although there are other versions out there ; this is one of the best . All the girls are wonderful as the sisters; but Dey is one of the best Jo holding her own with Hepburn and Allison. The real treat is Greer Garson as Aunt March ; Robert Young as old Mr. Lawrence and Dorothy McGuire as Marmee. They are three stars from the Golden Years of Hollywood who make this an A list movie. A movie to be watched and rewatched and treasured!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated production, but very good adaptation November 11, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember seeing this when it aired on TV lo so many years ago, and am very happy that it is now available on DVD.

There are many things to recommend about this production; first of all, Susan Dey as Jo. Physically, she's closer to the vivid description Alcott herself gives us (tall, long-limbed, round-shouldered, and awkward) than is Wynona Ryder--much as I admire Ryder's performance, her petiteness keeps me from truly seeing the Jo March I imagined as a child. Dey is also by turns funny, tender, fiery, and poignant. Meredith Baxter-Birney is an appropriately pretty Meg, and portrays the character's little vanities while retaining her essential appeal. As gentle Beth, Eve Plumb is surprisingly affecting, particularly in her final scene with Jo at the seaside. As for Ann Dusenberry...one wishes they had cast a true 12-year-old for the young Amy, as Dusenberry's valiant attempt to play young unfortunately results in an overly-petulant Shirley Temple. Her grown-up Amy is the least satisfying protrayal of the four sisters.

Richard Gilliland's Laurie seems too modern and all-American for a character who was reared and educated in Europe. Cliff Potts, on the other hand, is a good Brooke, upright without being stuffy. William Shatner's customary hammy style somehow works for Professor Bhaer, but his German accent is unconvincing, to say the least.

Of the "veterans", Greer Garson stands out for her memorable Aunt March: no crusty, bad-humored fossil of a woman is she, but an elegantly overblown product of her era and upbringing, with foreshadowings of Wilde's Lady Bracknell. Dorothy Maguire and Robert Young as Marmee and Mr. Laurence turn in solid, intelligent performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Admirable Adaptation June 9, 2008
Format:DVD
Louisa May Alcott's beloved novel is, in my opinion, one of the most difficult books to adapt to film. Much of the story revolves around inner struggles, which is hard to portray on screen, the period costumes are anything but simple, and besides this, a great deal of time transpires, so often the actors either look too old or too young for their parts. While this TV miniseries isn't perfect, I think that the filmmakers did an admirable job. The running time of a little over three hours gives the advantage of accuracy, without ever dragging. Even though certain portions were altered or cut out altogether, the script flowed naturally and presented many of the often overlooked facets to this lovely story. In my review here, I will attempt to report both the strengths and weaknesses of this movie.

On a positive note, the four March sisters are superb in their roles. Susan Day is the most human and real Jo I have seen so far, combining all the fiery temper, kindness and impetuous loyalty she possessed in the novel. Not only was Meg (Meredith Baxter) sufficiently pretty, but I was very much pleased to see her character given more development as she grew from girl to woman. Eve Plumb became everything I had ever pictured Beth to be and Ann Dusenberry's Amy grew on me, although she never became a favorite of mine. Altogether, I felt that this film captured the sisters dynamic well and gave each of them a chance to shine. The rest of the cast did a good job too, and I especially loved Greer Garson's proud and stuffy "Aunt March" and Richard Gilliland as the neighbor boy, Laurie. Speaking of Laurie, it was a delight to see the conflict between him and his grandfather included, which is usually glossed over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best film adaptation of Little Women August 11, 2007
By Alesia
Format:DVD
For fans of Louisa May Alcott and her treasured novel, you must see this film! I have been searching for it for years (after its NBC debut, it was unavailable to rent or purchase anywhere!), and I'm so thrilled to finally find it on Amazon. No other film adaptation of Little Women compares to this one: both beautifully acted and filmed, it will move you like no other. A movie tradition for families to share for years to come...

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold October 20, 2007
Format:DVD
What a treat to have this version on DVD. My sisters and I used to watch this over and over again on VHS after mom recorded it when we were kids. It was taped over accidentally and I thought it was lost forever.I have been looking for it for years! Now my seven year old daughter can enjoy it like I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good adaptation of Little Women February 4, 2009
By FVB
Format:DVD
Hello,
I'm French and I appreciated this adaptation of Little Women when I saw it in France few years ago.
I find this adaptation better than the film with Susan Sarandon. I only have one regret : there is no subtitle in english and I can't understand every dialogue without them.
Good film.
Bye.
