The Magic of Lassie

  • Film

Time Out says

'She's something that came from God!' James Stewart croaks in this monstrous musical adventure, which marks Lassie's comeback to the big screen after many years in TV. And he might be right, since everyone treats the dog with utmost sentimental reverence: when she's taken from her vineyard home by a nasty city slicker, even the sight of her empty food bowl makes people weepy. Diabetics and animal-haters should avoid, but for schlock addicts the film boasts Alice Faye (first film in 17 years) preparing eggs while singing a terrible song about roses and their 'scratchy, catchy thorns'. Unbelievable.
