    Grandma Walton as the maid/housekeeper in NY?

    If I remember correctly, this was a b & w movie, colorized thanks to Ted Turner? Wonderful, and kept my 88 yr. old mom mesmerized for 2+ hrs. Was that indeed Ellen Corby as the maid in NY? So true to the book as I remember it as a young girl, except that Prof. Bauer was depicted as a more portly gent in the book, and this Prof. was so svelte and sexy; I enjoyed that! What a joy to watch!

    Must see Movie!

    Excellent movie. I thouroughly enjoyed the overall plot, the actors and the soundtrack. I am a huge fan of June Allyson and I think this is one of her best movies.

    Good remake

    This is MGM's 1949 Technicolor remake of the Louisa May Alcott classic.<BR/>While it's not up to RKO's 1933 classic Katharine Hepburn version,<BR/>Mervyn LeRoy's film is good family enteratinment.The movie's sets and costumes look great in beautiful photography.The performances are good<BR/>(especailly June Allyson and Janet Leigh),and so is LeRoy's fond direction.Adolph Deutsch provides a lovely music score.It drags in spots,but the movie is still good fun.

    Classic in glorious technicolor

    For me, this version is the prettiest and most charming film version...it is done with great taste and style, and June Allyson is perfect as Jo. Liz Taylor is really funny as Amy...especially when doling out muffins to the poor kids: "And one for me! Isn't this fun?" Share this with your whole family.

    My Favorite Version!

    This is my favorite movie adaptation of Little Women. I like the 1933 version with Katharine Hepburn as Jo and I liked her in the roll, but this 1949 version is my favorite and I found June Allyson to be a much more convincing Jo. The whole cast in this version is superb but especially June Allyson and Peter Lawford, and despite the fact that they made Beth younger than Amy when Amy was actually younger than Beth in Louisa May Alcott's book I found this movie pretty faithful to the book! Answer to another reviewers question: Yes that was indeed Ellen Corby (who played the Grandma in the The Waltons) playing Sophie the maid at the boarding house in this movie and I would also like to point out that the March family's maid Hannah was played by Elizabeth Patterson who played Mrs. Trumble in I Love Lucy.

    Watch George Cokor's production instead

    June Allyson's portrayal of Jo is so superficial, forced and unnatural that it greatly affected my enjoyment of this movie. Watch Katharine Hepburn's Jo in the earlier version of Little Women.

    Stunningly Remastered Classic On DVD

    'Little Women' (1949) is the delightful coming of age story that follows the exploits of the March sisters, Jo (June Allyson), Beth (Margaret O¿Brien), Amy (Elizabeth Taylor) and Meg (Janet Leigh) as they mature from the angst of childhood into their unsuspecting futures as young women of merit and substance. Jo is a tomboy, defying all convention and propriety in her quest to live a life of enchantment and excitement. That excitement leads Jo first into the arms of the very wealthy, Theodore (Peter Lawford), who she rejects, then the penniless, but infinitely better suited, Professor Bhaer (Rossano Brazzi), who eventually wins her heart. This was the second time Louisa May Alcott's novel had been filmed - the first, in Technicolor. As Jo, June Allyson¿s performance holds up quite well against Katherine Hepburn¿s indelible original. Allyson is properly pert, plucky and disdainful all at once. She makes the part her own. Mary Astor is tender as Mrs. March. Also in the cast is C. Aubrey Smith, making his final screen appearance as the stoic but loveable Mr. James Lawrence and veteran curmudgeon, Lucille Watson as Aunt March. This is a wonderful tale no matter the age and the acting in this version is perhaps the finest ever realized. Warner Video gives us an absolutely gorgeous looking transfer. Colors are rich, bold and vibrant. Flesh tones have been nicely balanced. Black and contrast levels are dead on. Only in a few scenes does the transfer tend to lose fine detail. The audio is mono but nicely mixed and fresh sounding. There are no extras.

    You'll love this Movie!

    I watched this movie and loved it! I found it a perfect mix of comedy and drama, Jo being my favorite. She just had one of those smiles and she reminded me a little of Jo from Facts of Life. Anyway I really think people don't give this version enough props, it is artfully designed and left me wanting for more at the end. Katherine Hepburns performance was good but I think June Allyson IS Jo. Elizabeth Taylor, Janet Leigh and scene stealer Margaret O Brien were wonderful. I cried when Beth told Jo she wasn't meant to live long and thus didn't make any plans for her future. The women in this movie are independent strong willed and champions of their own fate. Louisa May Alcott would be proud this movie has done her book justice.
