Did you ever see the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s 1985 TV mini-series of Anne of Green Gables? One of the finer book-to-television adaptations. Remembering Jonathan Crombie’s Gilbert Blythe. Crombie passed away yesterday.

  1. OMG, so sad. I totally fell in love with Jonathan Crombie when he played Gilbert Blythe. Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite TV series ever…

  2. So sad. Like so many others, I lived and breathed that movie when it came out. I was just the right age for it – 11. He is still what I think of when I think of Gilbert. Thanks for this.
