This was a nice "doggie" story but fairly predictable and did not seem to relate much to the original story in the book.
One question that comes to mind also is how much research did the film crew do on props? This was a period story set in the late sixties / early seventies. The cars and (e.g.) suitcases looked authentic, but what about the guitar that Stemple (the young stock man) was often seen playing? This looked to me like a modern Maton guitar! There are are hundreds of vintage Maton guitars out there, so why not use one from the correct period?.
These days if you are going to make a period story set forty years ago, at least make a bit more effort with the props!
