... In which Rinty and Queenie thwart the fox fur thieves!
17 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This title was amongst a job lot of 16mm films we bought and was a British copy complete with British Board of Film Censors "U" certificate and an Ealing Film Distributors logo at the beginning. It is so ineptly directed and scripted and the "handsome" leading man is so wooden in his role that I found it all rather charming and endearing. Undoubtedly watching this on a screen in a gorgeous crisp and contrasty 16mm print added to my enjoyment. Students of action sequences should study the fight scenes so as to learn how not to do it. And the two presumably intended-to-be-nefarious "bad" guys - Brad and Pete - are really quite affable.

To show how gentle the hero's dog Rinty is there is a brief sequence where he takes off ("Dogs are like humans; sometimes they just like to be on their own" intones our stolid leading man to his nephew)and coming across a gorgeous little litter of fluffy white bunnies decides to snuggle down next to them! One wonders if this is where Peanuts creator Charles Schultz got the idea for Snoopy's affection for bunnies? The music is manically mismatched! At the end Rinty settles down to a relationship with the villain's reformed dog Queenie. Lovely! Oh .. and there is a brief appearance by Laurel and Hardy shorts regular Mae Busch.
