Storyline

Life is hard for Yorkshire miner's son Joe Carraclough, who is beaten at school by a his teacher, his only consolation is his collie Lassie. It gets worse: when the mine is decommissioned, his father, Sam, is forced to sell the dog to the duke, who owns the local estate. The Duke's servant, Hynes, scares the dog, who keeps running back, so the Carracloughs have to keep returning her, until the Duke moves to the Scottish Highlands for the holiday season. Lassie escapes, embarking on a desperate journey home, with daunting Glasgow dogcatchers and taken in by a circus performer. It looks like a miracle is needed, by Christmas. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

There were some earlier "Lassies," in literature of the 1800's, as well as in silent films. Eric Knight, a British-born author, wrote a Lassie character in a short story in 1940, then expanded it to a novel called "Lassie Come Home," which became the first Lassie sound film. The original "modern" Lassie was first played by a male collie named Pal in Lassie Come Home (1943). Pal is listed on the IMDb as Pal, and played Lassie in all of the early sound films. His descendants played in the TV series and in most Lassie films and TV appearances since. See more »

Goofs

The steam train has a British Railways logo on the tender, but British Railways didn't come into existence until after the war, certainly not before or during the war, the period in which the film is set. See more »

Safe babysitting movie for the kids.
4 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Everybody likes Lassie. It's a very safe movie for the kids. No cursing. Very little and controlled, mostly off-camera, violence. It seemed a bit boring in the beginning and there was very little action throughout the movie. Peter Dinklage did a very nice job as the puppet master. Lassie was the real star and left us all daydreaming that we owned her. Music and photography was awesome. Even though action was tame, drama was not. The drama of the movie sneaked up on me and took hold during the final 20 minutes of the movie. I started with a little misty eyes and ended up with full scale, non-stop crying for the last 15 minutes. I was not alone. We shared what tissues we had. But, unlike Old Yeller, they were tears of happiness. It took a full hour after the movie for me to regain complete control. Guess I'm just a big softy for families and dogs.
