Audience Reviews for Courage of Lassie


America's favourite collie plays the beloved canine whose adventures range from his wilderness puppyhood to wartime service to postwar stress to a moving family reunion is wonderful heroism and heartfelt story as I'm a collie dog lover that I ever had in my life.
Elizabeth Taylor appeared in this second Lassie movie since 1943's Lassie Come Home who plays as Bill's (Lassie) master. And I took tears at the end what I see Taylor and Lassie finally reunited altogether happily. That scene reminded me of 1943 Lassie film - what a fantastic memories.
I see Taylor's greatest fame came later, as a young woman, most people forget what a skillful child actress she was. Less burdened than at any later time by her beauty and fame, she is at her least self-conscious in these early performances. Untouched, she reveals in these animal stories her natural flair for tears and hugs - the paraphernalia of an emotional female.
