Determined to start a new life in the country, the Turner Family - Dad, stepmom, little Jennifer and teenager Matt - leaves the city for the wilds of Virginia. The move creates problems for everyone, especially Matt, who feels lost and alone in his new surroundings. Fortunately, the Turners are helped by a homeless collie who becomes part of their lives - and Matt does a lot of growing up as a result of the dog's unflinching loyalty.Written by
Helen Slater starred in 1984's "Supergirl;" At the time "Lassie" was filmed, Jon Tenney was married to Terri Hatcher who was then starring in "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman." Tenney even guest starred in two episodes of that series. See more »
When the Turner family goes to the county fair, they take Lassie too. It would be highly unlikely that you would see a dog roaming around a fair without being on leash. Normally, you are not allowed to bring the family dog unless you are showing the dog in competition. See more »
As for the single "In My Life", I purchased all of the Beatles on 45 rpm and large record size singles in the 60s, I have it on both formats. So it is not a goof! There are songs and records issued in different formats for regional, different countries and specialized markets that are never released for most of the USA. The music is good, photography is excellent and rich is color, story extremely possible, locations were outstanding. Production gave a feeling that you were right there is the location and experiencing everything as it happened. My four year-old loved along with the rest of the family. It kept everybody attention. Overall an excellent family movie.
