Louisa May Alcott's Little Women is one of the great young-adult novels of the 19th century. It describes the coming-of-age of the four March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, whose loving mother cares for them while their father serves in the Civil War. Jo, who falls in love and becomes a writer, is clearly an analogue for Alcott herself. This 1949 film adaptation stars Elizabeth Taylor as Amy, Janet Leigh as Meg, June Allyson as Jo, and Mary Astor as Marmee.

I liked this family drama DVD. It is good for all ages. It portrays the importance of family. It shows how family can help a lot in hard times. There is a war during the story with families being parted from each other. They are affectionate with each other. It slightly shows how Victorian Society is and this particular choose to be better than that. It is about falling in love and ones ambitions in life. One of the daughters gets to travel to Europe with her Aunt. It is a biography of the author. It is well acted. The script is well written.

Mervyn Leroy got it right when he filmed Louisa May Alcots Autobiographical account of her childhood. Although the movie had been already done a favorably reviewed with Katherine Hepburn, Mervyn Leroy went ahead a made the movie classic of this great story. He picked a great cast June Allyson, Peter Lawford, Elizabeth Taylor, and Janet Leigh. All the above females play sisters home alone with the mom with their father fighting in the Civil War. So we will follow the family for the first few years starting in 1860. It is a wonderful story, that I wouldn't think of ruining it for you with more plot details. Although three movie versions are in the KCLS catalog, this is my favorite. I think you will find it a wonderful holiday movie!
