THIS FAMOUS BOOK has been a great favourite from its first publication in 1910 and since then it has been been adapted many times for stage and screen. The first filmed version was made in 1919 by the Players-Lasky Corporation, then MGM filmed the second adaptation in 1949, next came BBC television serial versions in 1959 and again in 1975. In 1987 Hallmark Hall of Fame made a TV adaptation of the novel starring Gennie James as Mary, Barret Oliver as Dickon, and Jadrien Steele as Colin. A stage adaptation as a musical opened on Broadway in 1991. The most acclaimed film adaptation was American Zoetrope's 1993 production and in 2000, a sequel movie entitled Return to the Secret Garden was produced. Another sequal, Back to the Secret Garden was produced in 2001. And there was even a Japanese Animation, version of The Secret Garden was made in 1991.
