I saw this film when I was a kid and loved it! What I wouldn't give to have it restored and on DVD! The story is great, the acting snappy and the comedy superb! A rich old man dies and leaves all his money to his pet dog, Rex. The old gent's lovely young secretary is charged with the care of the dog and is happy to do so. But the dog gets poisoned and the secretary is arrested. Meanwhile, Rex arrives at the judgment seat for animals. Good animals go to Animal Heaven. Bad animals must return to Earth to live as a human! (Called `humals'). Rex has a ticket to animal heaven but he wants to go back to Earth to clear the secretary, whom he is sure did not murder him. He is given three days as a humal to solve the crime and given an assistant, a racehorse named Golden Harvest. The duo return to Earth as Rex Shepard, PI and his assistant, Goldie Harvest. It's all the more humorous as Rex munches on dog biscuits and Goldie has a nose bag for a purse, tiny horseshoes on the soles of her shoes and can outrun a bus! They solve the crime, but Rex falls in love with the pretty young secretary and now must decide if he should go to animal heaven or stay on earth as a humal! Goldie helps him decide but pointing out the girl's father is a humal-part Scottish terrier (you can see the resemblance!) A great film!
