Lassie Come Home


1943; 90 min.

Here you have the classic boy-and-his-dog movie. Young Joe is forced to give up his beloved collie because his family is so poor it can no longer afford to feed a pet. The dog escapes from his new owner, the Duke of Rudling, and returns to Joe. To prevent another escape, the Duke takes Lassie far away (from Yorkshire to Scotland). When freed by the Duke's kindly granddaughter, Lassie makes a long, heroic journey back to Joe (don't worry -- everything works out ok). This movie made Lassie (actually a whole series of Lassies) a star and spawned a number of sequels, a radio show, and a TV series.
