1957; 83 min.
After Dad sets out on a cattle drive, his youngest son finds a stray yellow dog and adopts him. Eventually the whole family bonds with "Old Yeller," but their attachment to the dog will be severely tested. This movie confronts some difficult issues, including the loss of a beloved pet (have your hankies ready) and making the transition from child to adult. It provides a nice re-creation of rural Texas life in 1869.
