About the Movie
The original adventure of a boy and his dog is considered by many as the best. Young Roddy McDowall ("The Planet of the Apes," "The Poseidon Adventure") stars as a boy whose poor family is forced to sell their beloved collie, Lassie. After he's reluctantly taken away, the loyal dog embarks on a treacherous cross-country adventure to be reunited with McDowall. With Oscar-winners Elizabeth Taylor ("Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," "National Velvet"), Donald Crisp ("How Green Was My Valley") and Edmund Gwenn ("Miracle on 34th Street") and Oscar-nominee Dame May Whitty ("Gaslight," "Mrs. Miniver"). This is the original Oscar-nominated movie that launched two sequels and a popular TV series. Inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry and AFI recently selected Lassie as one of the 50 Greatest Heroes of all time.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A thorough delight.
Fresh: Lassie celebrates nothing more profound than the simple and timeworn relationship of a boy and a dog. It dramatizes the uncomplicated goodness of an animal in a complicated human world.
Fresh: Lassie emerges as nice entertainment enhanced by color photography and good scenic shots.
Fresh: The classic 1943 canine weepie about a collie who crosses most of Britain to return to the little boy who loves her.
Lassie Come Home
Lassie is the most beautiful and smart, o.k., well-trained? I was so happy to see so many people love her! Such an emotional and moving story: "Don't come home no more", that statement would bewilder most. And, Toots, well, I'm just too familiar with that.
The actors did a wonderful job! Very well-played.
