George Cukor directed this sterling screen adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's immortal novel. As the Civil War rages, the March sisters -- headstrong Jo (Katharine Hepburn), preening Amy (Joan Bennett), romantic Meg (Frances Dee) and quiet Beth (Jean Parker) -- grapple with heartache and disillusionment on the way to finding love and happiness. Replete with elegance, this 1933 film version collected an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
