Jack Crandall (Dwayne Hickman) is a traffic reporter who seems to put his audience to sleep. One day, a stray St. Bernard dog hops in the back of Jack's helicopter and helps him create a new, exciting format for future traffic updates. Jack is fortunate enough to acquire a lovely new neighbor (Mary Ann Mobley), also. The darling doggy, however, has a past life as a kleptomaniac and he continues to create havoc at work, at home, everywhere. When he steals a priceless necklace, however, the real jewel thieves are eager to kidnap a canine. Is there a way out of this mess?
This is a fine family film with a wonderful cast, especially Elsa Lanchester and Joe Flynn, in their supporting roles as apartment owner and radio station manager, respectively. Dog lovers will drool over the movie, naturally, as well. Then, too, the innocent quality of the film making is almost a lost art these days. Steal away to the family room with your loved ones and enjoy the fun as the show unfolds. Although the movie may be difficult to locate, those who do will find a serenity and humor that is a haven from the outside world.
