This film was first telecast in Philadelphia Sunday 14 April 1957 on WFIL (Channel 6), in Los Angeles Friday 19 April 1957 on KTTV (Channel 11), in New York City 3 June 1957 on WCBS (Channel 2), and in San Francisco 3 May 1958 on KGO (Channel 7). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. See more »

I love dogs so this movie is probably the best ever of showing the courage and love of a dog. This film is set in a little Yorkshire town. Two of the great character actors (Donald Crisp and Edmund Gwenn) as Sam Carraclough and Rowlie Palmer respectively add so much to the "feel" of this film. Carraclough family needs money so sell the only thing of worth, a dog named Lassie to Nigel Bruce "the Duke." Roddy McDowall plays Joe Carraclough who loves the dog with all his heart and vice-versa from Lassie. The dog is taken to Scotland and Lassie must escape in order to "come home" to Joe. There is a great river to swim to reach England but Lassie does it. The cost is great, she is near death until an old couple care for her and nurse her back to health. But something is wrong, at 3:50pm each day she must leave somewhere? The couple gave her freedom for the journey home. Lassie then joins Rowlie Palmer a "pots/pans" traveling salesman along with his own beloved dog, Toots. Little Toots is better than a wife for Rowlie because she is neat, clean and gives no back check to Rowlie. Poor Toots is killed trying to save her master. Finally Lassie makes it home. Damaged, injured and a wanted dog, she braves whatever it takes to get home. But wait, she belongs to the Duke not Joe, can the humans in the story arrange a proper home for Lassie? Tune in to this classic and find out.
