L'ipéen, in collaboration with the Charlottetown Film Society, is really happy to present the earliest surviving film version of the beloved Island novel. (There was a silent version made in 1917, but it is now considered a lost film). The screenwriter, Sam Mintz brings some 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, the actress, Dawn Evelyeen Paris, a teenage actress, 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!
