Our dog Danny Boy returns as a WWII war veteran having been highly honored and decorated as a hero. His young owner has doubts that this really is his dog and a certain neighbor has reservations about the safety of such a dog - since he was an attack dog is he yet a menace or danger to the town? This is no BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES though in a canine way it follows the rehabilitation theme. A bit predictable but if you don't expect too much it has its rewards. It is well acted both by the leads and the supporting cast. Ace the German Shepherd does an adequate job. Of course no "dog picture" is complete without a bit a sentiment. Unlike Lassie who always seemed to have super than human abilities, Danny Boy doesn't pretend to be more than what he is. It's worth a watch.
