Did You Know?


This film was the first filmed in the Technicolor "monopack" process, where one magazine of film registered all three primary colors, rather than the original three-strip Technicolor process (introduced in 1932), where a separate magazine of film had to be exposed (and processed) for each of the three primary colors.

Toward the end of the movie, while Joe and Laddie are escaping the work camp, Laddie bites the leg of a Nazi soldier. The "bait" to make Laddie bite can be seen under the pants-leg, in Laddie's mouth. See more »

A Treat for Dog lovers
14 November 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I was surprised I enjoyed this film as much as I did. Originally I only had it on in the background on TCM while I was getting ready for work. Before I knew it I was peeking at the TV instead of looking for a shirt to wear. I was getting absorbed in the story and losing track of the time. Sure I was was going to be late for work...but I had to know, would Laddy turn out to be as brave trusty as Lassie? Would he continue to follow his master even through war torn Norway and seemingly endless obstacles including heartless German soldiers and miles of snow ? These were all questions I had to find out before I headed to my job ! Lucky for me I found a blank video tape to record the ending so I still made it.

I loved this film. It had wonderful acting by all involved, including the dog. Visually it contained beautiful scenery, even great shots of the WWII planes I like so much . The production was top notch. Lots of action, and best of all a good old fashioned happy ending. What more can you ask for? These days gems like this are considered way to sugary by our cynical 21st century society to be produced. To bad cause once in awhile it's very refreshing to see the good guys and the dog all live happily ever after.

If you love animals and haven't seen this one yet, get a box of hankies and some popcorn cause you are in for a real treat. Now excuse me while I go hug my beagle.
