In this endearing family classic, a collie makes many friends as it journeys from Scotland to Yorkshire to return to its young master in Lassie Come Home. A family that has fallen on hard times during World War I must sell its beloved collie, Lassie. They find a wealthy buyer in Scotland, whose young granddaughter (Elizabeth Taylor) loves the dog. But Lassie yearns for her former master, young Joe Carraclough (Roddy McDowall), and sets off to cross the length of Britain to return to Joe.

Common Sense Says
Barkin' good moral-rich classic. But violent, too.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while this boy-and-his-dog classic is full of good morals and helpful lessons, there's also tremendous peril that may disturb younger and more sensitive viewers. For instance, two men attack Rowlie, beat him, and kill Toots. Lassie gets shot at and attacked by dogs, and even injures her leg in an escape.
