This movie, by the way, is a separate adaptation of the original novel by Eric Knight, and in no way a 'remake' of the 1943 film "Lassie Come Home". The film is hopelessly sentimental, of course. Jonathan Mason is a very special young actor. He just has something - a real personality and likeability. The girl is as dull as ditchwater, but never mind.

A very nice remake of Lassie Come Home. Not really necessary, but still a fine job and worth a look.
