Who would have thought that day would come. By now it may be too late to ask your grandmother about this. Or perhaps not. Many of you reading this inspirational and highly encouraging note may remember the day she, or your mother, introduced you to the classic and enduring story of Anne of Green Gables. Many of you may have been guilty of dismissing it with a pinch of salt, underestimating its literary value.
Black and white movies came; you dismissed those too, then came full spectrum multiplex and cinema scope. Anne of Green Gables was nowhere in sight on these mediums. She made her comeback on TV and on beta video tapes. Flat screen TV is still going strong while both beta and VHS are redundant. It was replaced by DVD and Blue-ray which, as it turns out, is still proving too costly for many folks who, perhaps righteously, prefer to visit their local library instead.
Anne Shirley is most certainly still there. Now, the idea of streaming, never mind just downloading the movie, might still be a novel idea to those of the old school, but elsewhere it is catching on. And guess what, now you can watch Anne Of Green Gables streaming too. Just so long as you’ve got a fixed line and your internet server is serving you well, if you will, streaming for your favorite film and literary classics is a lot cheaper than downloading and purchasing Blue-rays, although the latter is still available with Anne Shirley’s current custodian, Sullivan Entertainment.
Don’t forget though, that it’s a worthwhile exercise reading the original classic text. Acknowledged, this may also be a new experience for you, but after watching the movie online or via streaming, you will have gained a ready appreciation to do so.
