Anne of Green Gables
Title: Anne of Green Gables
An elderly bachelor and his spinster sister adopt an orphan and are mistakenly sent a girl instead of a boy. The orphan, Anne, remains with the couple, moves from one mishap to another, succeeds academically, and finds love. This is one of my favorite book(s)-to-movie adaptations.
