ReviewSource The Observer
Review Eric Knight is remembered, if at all, as the author of the 1940 bestseller Lassie Come Home. Now almost a piece of folklore, it's a heartwarming tale of a handsome brown-and-white collie dog sold by its impoverished owner, a Yorkshire miner, to a local aristocrat, who takes her to northern Scotland, whence she makes a heroic return journey back to her 10-year-old master Joe. It was successfully filmed by MGM in 1943, and followed by half-a-dozen sequels and a long-running TV series...The villain of the piece is the duke's dogkeeper, who's been obediently doing his master's dirty work. The hopes for a future where a more just society will prevail are forgotten, which is a pity as Eric Knight's last completed work was the script for World of Plenty, a celebrated documentary on the creation of a more equitable postwar world.

Review A sweetly old-fashioned, tail-wagging charmer of a family film, Lassie bounds across the screen with sincerely heartwarming results in Charles Sturridge's faithful adaptation of Eric Knight's 1938 novel, Lassie Come Home. Backed by a fine, two-legged cast of British acting talent, the Ÿber-collie will likely move even the most hardened cynics to tears as she embarks on an epic journey to reunite with her young master.
