This was understandably inspiring to wartime audiences and actually still holds up as a heartwarming story with a very decent cast.

This film is a fairly well-balanced effort, and if you're in the mood for an evening of obvious sentiment, this boy-and-his-dog film works quite well.

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.

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

Lassie Come Home gives the screen's first dog star, Rin-Tin-Tin, a run for his money, mostly thanks to its rich Technicolor cinematography and its top-shelf cast.
