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 »

Don't low-rate Phil Harris
24 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Phil Harris's contribution to this low-key gem should be acknowledged. Harris does not strike a single false note in his role as the local merchant and bird hunter. Sydney Poitier is a little less believable. By the way, the characters are properly described as swamp folk, or swamp rats, not hill billies.
