Did You Know?


The dog playing Laddie (the son of Lassie) is actually Pal - the dog who played the original Lassie in Lassie Come Home (1943). See more »


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 »


Joe Carraclough: You know something, Laddie? You've got to understand something before we go back home this time. One of the little things about war is you can't have your dog. You're a very little thing for me to give up... many are giving up their children. I suppose when I have a child... feeling something like this... it probably won't be anything like it. Perhaps I'll never know about it. But, anyway, I know about you. I won't see you anymore.

"Lassie Come Home" Sequel.
15 November 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

S. Sylvan Simon directed this sequel to "Lassie Come Home", set several years later, with Lassie's son being a trained war dog who assists a grown-up Joe(now played by Peter Lawford) while he is behind enemy lines in Norway during WWII, where he is now a soldier who must flee the Nazis in his bid for freedom. June Lockhart takes over the role of Priscilla from Elizabeth Taylor, who here is romantically involved with Joe, praying for his safe return. Donald Crisp returns as his father Sam, and Nigel Bruce also returns as the Duke of Rudling. Entertaining continuation of the first film pretty much gets it right with an interesting wartime setting, though it's a pity the time-frame didn't allow the return of original actors Roddy McDowall & Elizabeth Taylor, though Lawford & Lockhart do just fine.
