Title character A 'gift' from Jim's sister Regina
23 October 2010 | by rsteffen82See all my reviews

George is a cheerful story that fans of the 'Marmaduke' comic strip and any dog story would also find this film enjoyable. Released in W. Germany in 1975 'Alles wegen George' or 'All because of George' is fitting.

The story begins as Jim's sister Regina is getting married.. again, and Regina is already too busy to be inconvenienced by her 'baby' George and sends him to be w/ her brother the pilot. Jim a bachelor pilot is not prepared for George, a St. Bernard with acrophobia, but gets help from friends and a monastery.

It's 'G' rating makes it an ideal family friendly movie especially if you are put off by typical films in the genre as main characters are not obnoxious and try too hard to play to the audience. The cast is nothing to brag about and consists of mostly of unknowns. The story is more heart than suspense. A very well done low budget film from 1972 without major financial backing like indies of recent times.
