Gearing up for a talk by art historian Julia Dabbs from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday, February 8th on Little Women, the Morris Public Library will be showing three different movie versions of Little Women. The 1994 film version with Winona Ryder’s Oscar-winning performance will be shown 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday. Morris Library Director Anne Barber told the KMRS Community Connection that many consider this version to be the gold standard among all the Little Women movies.
“It was nominated for three Academy Awards and stars Winona Ryder as Jo,” said Barber. “It also has Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes, Susan Sarandon, Christian Bale. So, a lot of actors that are still working now.”
A 1933 black and white version with Katharine Hepburn will be shown 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, February 1. And a 1949 version of Little Women in glorious Technicolor with June Allyson, Janet Leigh and Elizabeth Taylor will close out the series 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, February 15. All showings are free and open to the public.
