Realart Pictures universe[]

Main article: Portal:Realart Pictures

Featured in: Anne of Green Gables (1919).

This was the second universe ever created. L. M. Montgomery did not care for this adaptation, because (among other things) she did not like the way Mary Miles Minter played Anne, calling her "too sugary-sweet" to be Anne. She also criticised the introduction of American elements into the film, such as skunks and an American flag.[1]

Featured in: Anne of Green Gables (1934) and Anne of Windy Poplars (1940).
