Best film about Dogs who fight wars.
28 March 2005 | by (Russia.) – See all my reviews

you all have to look it! it was a good picture! me and my brother and my sister and my brother and my mother and my father and my dogs think about it as about a good movie.

i looked it back in 1942 when it was released, i remember me and my son went to watch it, it was my birthday thing for his graduation from his university. we liked it.

the dogs was funny and attractive.

it fascinated us.

Billy Lee is a coconut people!

I still keep the ticket from the shop we watched it in.
