A wonderful story about a girl and her dog

This is a B movie to be sure, but very interesting. Sharyn Moffet plays the orphaned Pat, who is sent to live with her Aunt in Boston after having spent all of her life on the old family farm down south. Banjo is the name of her beloved dog-a pointer. Who also accompanies Pat to Boston. Misadventures soon follow the pair. If I say anymore, then you will know how it ends. It is always a pleasure to see the unpretentious Sharyn Moffet on screen.

This film was made to appeal to juvenile audiences, but the entire family will enjoy it as well.
