Storyline

Skeeter has found this dog and discovers no one knows what kind of dog it is. Discussing the matter with his uncle the desire to keep and train the dog for bird hunting after finding the dog has super senseing ability but does not bark. He "yoddles" or laughs as some would say. However the real owner William Hoppers character wants him back due to the rarity of the breed. A very sensitive and moving film especially for fans of Walter Brennan and any dog lover. Written by Merv Denman <mervdenman65@msn.com>

Trivia

After Skeeter has placed Lady in the cage in the back of the pickup, Skeeter closes the tailgate and the pickup immediately drives away. This pickup is from a time when the tailgate was held shut by hooks on each side that are held in place on the ends of chains. To close the tailgate it was necessary to put those hooks in place or the tailgate would fall open. Skeeter had no time, and had made no effort to use these hooks. See more »

Goofs

A shot of Uncle Jesse and Skeeter's kitchen shows a bag of C&H (California and Hawaiian) sugar on the shelf. C&H sugar distribution has been almost exclusively west of the Mississippi River. Domino is the longtime sugar of choice in Mississippi where the story takes place. See more »

Another Boy and His Dog Tale
19 January 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Orphaned young Brandon de Wilde (as "Skeeter" Claude) lives with wizened uncle Walter Brennan (as Jesse Jackson) near a Georgia swamp. The young lad's lonely life is brightened when he finds an unusual dog. "Lady" laughs, cries and catches chickens. Get out your handkerchiefs, because you can bet something will threaten to separate the boy and his dog. There is nothing here to propel this film too far above station; it represents the genre well, but not extraordinarily. Master de Wilde and Mr. Brennan perform exactly as you'd expect. There are some interestingly staged scenes, by director William A. Wellman and cameraman William H. Clothier, alongside an enhancing acoustic soundtrack and eclectic cast.
