Great review of a great movie, Matt, thanks!

This may be my favorite version of the story, but then again I've never seen a "bad" version. The first one I ever saw was the TV movie on NBC back in the 70's (with Susan Dey and Eve Plumb!) as a kid and I thought that was just terrific. To this day, I've never seen a film version of Little Women that I couldn't warm up to.

I'm afraid to watch my copy.

I hated the 1994 "Little Women".

I hated the 2019 "Little Women".

Afraid I'll hate this one too! :unsure:

The only one I cannot abide is Greta Gerwig's 2019. I adore the 1994 version and revere this one. The 49 with June Allyson is also pleasantly enjoyable. Wish we had it on Blu too.

FWIW, I watched this yesterday and found it to be pretty good.

Like 1994, it's more "Little Woman" than "Little Women", as it focuses on Jo to the exclusion of almost everyone else.

While I disliked 2019, I do appreciate at least that Gerwig spread the wealth better than with 1933 and 1994.

Nonetheless, Hepburn carries the movie and makes it entertaining.

I can't say it makes me eager to read the book, but it's a quality film that becomes much more enjoyable than 1994 and 2019.
