Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

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.

Fine family viewing, very well produced film!
8 September 2004 | by (Richmond, VA) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to discover how much I enjoyed this movie. Having traveled in beautiful Norway several years ago -- the land of my ancestors -- and visited the WWII Resistance Museum in Oslo, the movie was of particular interest to me. I suspected the location shots were in Canada, for having traveled across the mountains of Norway, something didn't appear quite right, but very close. Lassie's performance as 'Laddie' is amazing and so many of the cast give fine performances, including a very young (22) Peter Lawford. Watch also for teenage Terry Moore! And sadly, one of the last movie roles by handsome former silent star Nils Asther as he slid into obscurity by the end of the '40s. Ironically, there is also 20-year-old June Lockhart, who later played the mother two decades later in the Lassie series on TV. A nice touch is the music of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg used throughout the score. Fine film for family viewing.
