5.0 out of 5 stars Disney At Its Best, With The Master's Touch October 2, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I first saw this movie as a child in the early sixties and never forgot it, even though I never saw it again. I came across it again shopping here and ordered it.
What a beautiful, and beautifully made movie! The video quality for VHS was great. This was one of those Disney movies made during their 'golden age' when Mr. Disney was still alive and running his company. It shows. The quality of production, the sets, the luminous quality of the filming, all speak of an integrity and sincerity that are so sadly missing from Eisner's Disney today. I showed this movie to a young child who was unaware that Disney ever made anything this well! She was thinking of the newer, much cheaper movies cranked out by Disney today.
As with many of Walt Disney's old movies, this is a film that can be viewed with pleasure by everyone. I didn't find it corny at all. Of course, this movie was set in the 'olden times' so we wouldn't expect to see modern clothing, etc. anyway. This movie is from a time when adults could watch Disney films right along with the children.
A beautiful, true story, and a treat for any movie fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful June 14, 2000
By Becky
Format:VHS Tape
"Greyfriars Bobby" is undoubtedly the greatest love story of all time, proving once and for all that true love can last for all eternity - beyond this life and into the next. What makes this story all the more remarkable is the fact that it's true, and the central character is a dog that slept every night without fail on the grave of his master for fourteen years! Such devotion should bring tears to the eyes of even the most hard hearted viewers, and it is convincing proof that dogs possess souls, and they also possess the greatest ability of all - the ability to love unconditionally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loyalty and the Transformng Power of Love July 8, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Greyfriars Bobby is one of the finest children's movies of all time. Based on a true story, it is a deep-feeling, understated exploration of how a "pound-hound" transformed an entire city. In detail it shows the the mutual transformation of a lonely, impoverished older man and the stray dog who befriends him. They become a fixture in their Scottish neighborhood -- the dog greeting schoolchildren, etc. -- until the old man's death. Scruffy-looking Bobby develops a routine of staying on his dead master's grave each day, still taking the time to greet the kids on their way to and from school. Upon the old dog's death, the people of Greyfriar's built a statue to Bobby, by his master's grave: a testament to loyalty and love. A several handkerchief movie but very uplifting, for adults and kids alike.

Walt Disney's 1961 classic Greyfriars Bobby is one of the most heartwarming and enchanting classic ever to be brought to the screen. Therefore, you can imagine my astonishment when I purchased the DVD only to find out that the entire narration by the star, Donald Crisp, is completely missing from the print. I come from a cinema industry background and remember the film vividly on its original and subsequent re-releases, and when it became available on VHS tape I immediatey purchased it and have enjoyed it again, many times over, complete with the narration on the VHS version. The narration by Donald Crisp is meant to start about 9 minutes into the film, as he becomes both narrator and the voice of the dog. One of the most important parts of the narration, and the story, is what happens to the dog after the events, which was originally all explained in the theatrical and VHS versions, but is completely missing on the DVD version, and therefore an important part of the emotional thread is also missing. I recommend that you watch the complete VHS version and totally avoid the incomplete DVD copy. Walt Disney would be disgusted at the way they have treated one of his most cherished classics.

I have been to Edinburgh Scotland, the scenes in the film can be easily seen today. The streets and castle are still the same. The story of Bobby is alive and well, if you take a bus tour of the city, the driver will point out the grave and monument of Bobby and his master. This is a good movie for all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie July 12, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I watched this movie as a child and thought it was one of the sweetest Disney ever made. The tale of a little dog who comes to his master's grave no matter who tries to stop him. In the end the whole village of Greyfriar loves him and adopts him as their own. I loved watching the battle of wills between the restaurant owner and the graveyard caretaker who each thought the "wee dog" should be his. But Bobby belonged only to his dead master in the graveyard. After Bobby died he was buried in the graveyard alongside his master, a rare honor for a little dog.
The only reason I gave the video 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the mono soundtrack. I stronly prefer stereo and would really like to see this movie released on DVD or even VCD.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Love April 13, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Here's a real life story, told with love and compassion. If you love animals, you'll love this movie! Both children and adults will laugh and cry at this movie. The scenery is great, and the acting is great. The phrase, Man's Best Friend, must have been coined with "Bobby" in mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See For Any One Who Loves Animals!!!!! June 26, 2005
Disney DVD has released the DVD of Greyfriars Bobby, a 1961

movie. This is based on the true story of Bobby, a Skye

terrier. The story takes place in the mid-1800's. Bobby was

so devoted to the shepherd he worked with, that when the

shepherd died, the little dog spent 14 years visiting his

grave. People living in the surrounding neighborhood were

touched by the little dog's devotion and they took care of

him. There is a statue of Greyfriars Bobby in Edinburgh.

Obviously, you will want to have a box of tissues ready while

watching this film but I promise it does have a happy ending. This is a lovely film which will charm any one who loves animals. The actors are wonderful, the dog is adorable, and the story is put together in an unusual manner that works quite well. After watching this film you will want to give your own animal companions a hug.

This film may upset young children.

Very highly recommended.
