In this drama, an embittered widow, a former concert singer, can't help but blame Lassie for her son's death. Needing help with her chores, she hires an orphan from the local home. At first she remains aloof towards the charming lad who quickly bonds with the collie dog, but as time passes she can't help but develop feelings for the boy. Later Lassie redeems herself when she saves the boy from a terrible fire in the orphanage. After that, the widow suddenly realizes that she does indeed love the boy and adopts him and puts Lassie back in her good graces.

Audience Reviews for The Sun Comes Up

Eventually, almost every star at MGM appeared in a musical, and Lassie was no exception; here, she shares screen time with Jeanette MacDonald (in her last film appearance). Lassie doesn't sing, but Jeanette does.
