Good Intentions

Ace the Wonder Dog ended his starring career and is replaced by Flame in this continuation of the 'Rusty' series. The plot is, as always, well-meaning, concerning itself with a blind girl and her efforts to get a seeing eye dog.

The adult cast is excellent, including the ever-dependable John Litel, but the dialogue is very stiff, particularly as spoken by the child actors.

Flame has a different set of tricks from Ace. Ace was good at baring his teeth and looking menacing. Flame does a lot more capering.

While not an awful movie, there isn't really that much entertainment here, although the movie's social conscience may make it worthwhile for the concerned moviegoer.
