Challenge to Lassie (1949)

Directed by
Richard Thorpe

Somewhat unashamedly stealing from the legend of Greyfriars Bobby, Richard Thorpe's film has Lassie raised from a pup by shepherd Jock Gray. When, on a trip to Edinburgh, he dies and is interred in Greyfriars, Lassie guards his grave day and night. Innkeeper John Traill cares for her but Sergeant Davie intends to enforce the law against stray, unregistered dogs and the faithful hound's fate ends up a matter for the courts of law. The lush score is from a then 20-year-old Andre Previn.
