The Charlottetown Film Society Inc., in collaboration with L’Ipéen, is happy to present the earliest surviving film version of the Island beloved novel. (There was a silent version made in 1917, but it is now considered a lost film).
Screenwriter Sam Mintz brings small changes to the novel (Ms. Barry and Rachel Lynde became one character), but the essence of the novel is there.
On the fun fact side, teenage actress Dawn Evelyeen Paris changed her name several times. In this film she is credited under the name of Dawn O’Day, but after the film she legally changed her name to Anne Shirley!
