Louisa May Alcott: Film Adaptations

Next year will be the 150th anniversary of the beloved novel Little Women, and if you’ve been following film and television news, you may know that several different production companies are planning on adapting the book for the screen! Alcott’s novels are no stranger to film and television; you may be a fan of one of the Little Women movie treatments, from the 1933 George Cukor version starring Katharine Hepburn to the 1994 film starring Susan Sarandon and Winona Ryder (not to mention the 1949 film version, the silent film versions, the anime version, or the various BBC and NBC miniseries produced over the years).

Of course with film and television adaptations of novels come the inevitable movie tie-in editions. Here are are few examples from the Louisa May Alcott Collection. All are available for research!
