A Little Rusty Story
1 July 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In small-town Lawtonville, young teen Ted Donaldson (as Daniel "Danny" Mitchell) and his pals are confronted about building their clubhouse on private property. Luckily, landowner and counselor-at-law Thurston Hall (as Franklyn P. Gibson) is a fine old chap. He sells the boys a 99-year lease for $4.00. That settled, the lads and young Donaldson's German shepherd dog "Rusty" become intrigued with newly arrived mystery man Stephen Dunne (as Jed Barlow). He comes to town with an enormous chip on his shoulder, arousing suspicion and gossip...

Amateur detectives Donaldson, Teddy Infuhr (as Michael "Squeaky" Foley), Ronnie Ralph (as Gerald Hebble), Dwayne Hickman (as Nip Worden) and David Ackles (as Tuck Worden) suspect Mr. Dunne has a sinister past. Obviously familiar with the script, everyone immediately assumes Dunne's accompanying German shepherd is a female. "The Son of Rusty" is portended when Dunne's dog "Barb" and Donaldson's "Rusty" sneak out to answer nature's call. The story lines are not related very well, but there are typical good messages for the kids herein.
