Cute kiddie farce
27 May 2002 | by calvertfanSee all my reviews

I loved this movie as a child, but never knew who the lady in it was until I saw it again recently. Quite funny that the only two Lillian Gish movies I've seen are from 1919 and 1984 - what a career!

Hambone & Hillie is along the Benji/Lassie trail, cute little dog makes cross-country trip to find his mistress again. On 2nd viewing, it's nothing at all great, but kids would like it. Warning - it's also very sad!
