Great old movie, especially the sheepdog trials.
14 April 2000 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie, given the era. It is not true to the original book, but close enough. The sheepdog trials are excellent, however, when you compare them to the travesties portrayed in the Lassie movies. The course is a possible but difficult one and certainly would indicate a dog's skill if it could be achieved. Whereas, in the book Auld Bob is supposed to be the superior dog, the movie portrays Red Wull as the dog with the real skill and style of a working sheepdog. Hey, I'm a Border Collie geek--what do you expect?
