"Big Red" is the story of a boy and a dog. The dog, Big Red, is owned by an older woodsman, played by Walter Pigeon. But Walter only wants the dog as a showdog, and treats him like a piece of furniture. When a young boy comes to work for Walter, he showers the dog with attention, and the dog becomes emotionally attached to the boy. Walter forbids the boy from paying attention to Big Red; the dog becomes depressed and jumps through a glass window to get to his friend. The glass slices the dog up, and after he heals, Walter sees that with all the scars on Red, he will no longer make it as a showdog. He gives the dog to the boy. But Red also has feelings for his old master, no matter how Walter seems to act toward him, and in the end Big Red and the boy save Walter after a hunting accident. This is a good family film; a little on the dramatic and depressing side, but for older kids it would be fine.
