    The big names in the 1949 adaptation of Little Women are Vivian Leigh as Meg and Elizabeth Taylor as Amy, but the former's story isn't explored very well, and the latter is too old for the character to be as absurd as she could be, making Beth the youngest (Margaret O'Brien was actually 12 to Taylor's 17). June Allyson's Jo is really where it's at. She's quite funny in the role, but touching when she needs to be, and more disinterested in boys than even our latest Jo, Saoirse Ronan (so I feel the book's betrayal of the character even more keenly). Too bad Peter Lawford is so uninteresting a Laurie then. I find the film a little toothless at times (no book burning, no ice breaking, Beth never seems all that sick, no real dilemma for Amy), but the heartwarming bits are there, with the girls being moral and having fun. This first color version makes its world look like it came out of a storybook, and that makes it a fine Christmas or Christmas-adjacent movie. 1 year 3 months ago

    It's over two hours of sticky sweet sentiment, and to say that even a single second of it captivated, or even interested me, would be a total lie. I was squirming in my seat the entire time. 9 years 9 months ago
