This is a passable story of young love in the Highlands, with a little bit about Sheepdogs thrown in for color, I guess. The book from which this movie was taken "Bob, Son of Battle" is quite a different story. Considered a children's book by many (which it is NOT!) the tale is of a legendary working dog that is bigger than life at times, and his rival, the evil Red Wool. One of the two is a sheep killer.
The movie waters down the relationship between father and son, and in true Hollywood fashion of the 40's makes all right in the world at the conclusion.
I should not have expected too much from the movie...I have read about six to eight books a month, over the past 50 years, and of everything I have read, "Bob, Son of Battle" stands out as the BEST book I've ever come across. So disappointed with the movie I was sure to be.
If you can find this one on TV watch it...but READ the book, you will love it!
