Anne of Windy Poplars is a 1940 film starring actress Anne Shirley, a sequel to the 1934 film Anne of Green Gables. The film is now considered to be a lost film. Only a few scenes remain.


Anne Shirley takes up a teaching position in a town where she finds herself unaccountably in conflict with the founding family and its sour matriarch.



The film recorded a loss of $176,000.[1]
