Stepfather issues
25 October 2020 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Earl Holliman and Jacqueline Scott star in this Disney TV film as a fairly new married couple.. Scott has brought her two children Ron Howard and Pamela Ferdin to the marriage and Holliman has stepfather issues with both.

A stray and injured German Shepherd that Howard names Smoke has arrived on the sheep ranch they live on and Holliman doesn't want a strange dog on the place, It's the basis for the conflict between Howard and Holliman.

Smoke is a decent enough bog and dog story and the players do well enough by their roles.
