Two little boys have faith in a dog they name Promise, so much faith that they enter him in the championship trials for bird dogs. The favorite is Georgia Boy bred and trained by the boys' fathers. And if Georgia Boy doesn't win, the fathers may both lose their jobs.Written by

Apparently, the first sound movie to be filmed entirely on location, at least in the state of Georgia, USA. See more »
[Although he lost the field trial, Promise's performance did not go unnoticed]
I was wrong about that dog all along.
It's easy to see how enough love and faith can outclass a whole kennel of thoroughbreds.

Much more than the story of a boy and his dog but a mature look at the coming of age of two boys as experienced through the travails of Promise, their misfit hunter. Extremely engaging view of the pre-WW2 South with subtle religious undertones. I've seen it three times and have found something new with each viewing. The fact that we own six dogs helps account for our affection for The Biscuit Eater.
