Interview Outtakes from the Film

Watch interview outtakes from leading Louisa May Alcott scholars, including Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Geraldine Brooks (March) and John Matteson (Eden’s Outcasts: The Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Father).


Update: Don’t miss John Matteson’s recent essay in Humanities, “Little Woman: The Devlish, dutiful daughter, Louisa May Alcott“.

    I loved the documentary until the very end when the credits ran TOO FAST and I couldn’t read the names of the cast! And I do not find any link on this website where i might find out the cast members other than Ms. Marvel and Ms.Alexander. How frustrating.

  • Bonnie Mangan

    The program was excellent, though there was no mention of her uncle, Samuel Joseph May, who was often helpful to the family. Rev. May took Bronson to hear Garrison speak. Her uncle Sam was an early abolitionist and a very interesting person in his own right.

    Sandy – This might be too late for you to get, but the entire cast is at

    Bonnie – I wish we could have included the wonderful Sam May. The biography of the same title, now out in paperback, mentions Sam May many times.

    Best, Harriet Reisen
