VERY GOOD 1933 film version of Louisa M. Alcott's famous novel of the four girls growing up to be women set in Concord, Massachusetts, during and after the American Civil War.
Katherine Hepburn is wonderfully dramatic as daughter Jo - and the three other actresses also give fine performances. I've only recently been seeking out her various films over a lengthy career and become quite a fan of her.
Edna May Oliver gives another fun performance as their cranky Aunt March - I've enjoyed seeing her do her cranky lady act in several films now, including A Tale of Two Cities and David Copperfield. When asked why she played predominantly comedic roles, she replied, "With a horse's face, what more can I play?
This is a fine George Cukor directed film version of a literary work.
I also recommend the great 1949 film version starring June Allyson, and Elizabeth Taylor at age 17, available at KCLS.

I love this version of Little Women! Katharine Hepburn is Jo March and love her interactions with all the other characters. And, seeing so many fabulous actresses in one film is great.

An endearing eighty year old adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic from director George Cukor. Although the woman was an icon, there's something I find irritating about Katharine Hepburn's manner of speaking. And she certainly loved being the center of attention. Edna May Oliver's tightly wound spinster character (Aunt March) was hilarious; I've seen her in several vintage films and she's always the same, and cracks me up every time.
