Saw it when I was a kid
30 March 2009 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

Back in the 1970s a local TV station used to broadcast obscure little b&w movies (like this) as filler during the afternoon. (Another one was "Carnival of Souls" which is now regarded as a classic.) I caught this when I was about 10 or so and loved it. The story was silly and the acting was really pretty awful (even for a kids movie) but it moved fairly quickly and the dog himself was just great! I also found the idea of this dog traveling from town to town by train and helping people kind of interesting and it seems it was actually a TV series for a while! I don't really want to see it again because I'm positive I'd find it hysterically bad now but it does bring back some good childhood memories. Kids are the best audience for this--especially ones who love dogs. A 7.
