Storyline

Inspired by a true story set in Missouri, "The Trial of Old Drum" tells the story of a valiant golden retriever, Old Drum, an orphan dog that becomes a boy's best friend and is then forced to stand trial for killing a neighbor's sheep. Charlie Burden [Bobby Edner] is a typical eleven-year old boy growing up on a farm in Western Missouri. His summer days are spent helping his dad [Ron Perlman] run the family farm, while also finding time to go fishing at nearby Miller's Lake, always accompanied by his faithful golden retriever, Old Drum. Scheming with his best friend Dee [Alia Shawkat] to build a secret raft, Charlie nearly drowns, only to be rescued by Old Drum. But Charlie's life is turned upside down when his cantankerous Uncle Lon [John Schuck] accuses Old Drum of killing his sheep. The town is divided over Drum's guilt or innocence, and an old family wound begins to fester. Losing sheep in this part of the country is not taken lightly. Looking to rid the town of a sheep killing ... Written by Porchlight Entertainment

Made me smile
25 October 2003 | by (Kansas City Missouri) – See all my reviews

When I went to college at Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg Missouri, the story of Old Drum was often told at a coffee house i frequented. Several years later when this movie came on the Hallmark Channel I made it a point to watch...Sure it wasn't a very well made movie but I couldn't help but smile watching in living color a story I had heard over and over again in my college years.
