Trivia

One of the last Cinemascope films released in the wider aspect ratio of 2.55:1. Beginning later that year, the aspect ratio of Cinemascope films would be changed to 2.35:1, because of the optional mono soundtrack now printed on the film in addition the four stereo ones. This mono soundtrack was added to most films recorded in stereo because not all theaters were willing to convert their sound systems. See more »

One Lucky Cocker Spaniel
18 November 1998 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Being owned by two English cocker spaniels my comments are a bit biased.

This film is intriguing, not just for the overall story but the way Flush, Elizabeth's cocker, was so much integral part of it. Given the 120 line poem that she wrote about Flush it was pleasing to see that Flush was very much a part of the movie.

Sir John Gielgud was a superb actor cast in the role of Elizabeth's tyrannical father. Jennifer Jones performance above par. And of course there was Flush. One very lucky cocker spaniel.
