Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Joe Carraclough has grown into adulthood as a World War II RAF airman. And Lassie's son Laddie is so devoted to him that he secretly stows away on the plane when Joe leaves on a bombing run.

When the plane is shot out of the sky over enemy-occupied Norway, Joe and Laddie parachute from the burning aircraft and begin their wartime adventures in this lively sequel. Peter Lawford and June Lockhart (long-time star of TV's Lassie) are Joe and Priscilla, parts previously played by Roddy McDowall and Elizabeth Taylor. Donald Crisp and Nigel Bruce return as savvy dog trainers. And ready to win the hearts and help win the war is a collie whose love matches his boundless courage.

I think this movie has more plot and action in it, making it one of my favorite Lassie movies. It shows how good people will risk their lives not only for human beings, but also for animals, which is true in real life. I'd risk my life to save my pets. It also had a more adult theme for adults and children to ponder. It was more realistic, in that some parts of the movie were very sad and tearful. It does end happy.

Two years after Lassie hit the big screen in Lassie Came home, he returned with this spectacular sequel, Son of Lassie. Purely an invention of the film makers, the story features Joe as a grown man who is is now in the Royal Air Force during and World War II is underway. Lassie (now played by another collie) is growing older, and one of her pups, Laddie (played by Lassie...), has taken over as the dog who belongs only to him. Priscilla, now played by June Lockhart, is now a beautiful young woman and clearly smitten with Joe.

Like his mom, Laddie is happiest with Joe, so he keeps following him to the Royal Air Force training school. When Joe is sent off a dangerous mission, Laddie ends up hidden on the plane as a stowaway. Joe's plane is shot down in the Norwegian mountains and the pair are separated. For those who don't know the gist of WWII, suffice to say English officers didn't want to be found by Germans, so Joe has to try to make his way to safety while also trying to reunite with his beloved dog.

This movie features some glorious scenes of the Norwegian countryside and mountains. The first shot shows some of the over coloring that Technicolor was known for during its first appearance, but the rest is brilliantly done. The soundtrack does a fairly nice job of accenting the movie without overshadowing the movie sounds as well. The acting in Son of Lassie is done quite well, with Donald Crisp and Nigel Bruce reprising their roles as Sam Carraclough and the Duke of Rudling (respectively). Peter Lawford and June Lockhart bring the older Joe and Priscilla to life quite well.

One thing I've always loved about the original Lassie movies as compared to the TV shows and the "modern" Lassie movies, is that the dog was given a realistic amount of intelligence.

Bought this for the children as they had seen all the pre-quels and wanted to see what happened to the next generation. It did not disappoint and was, in a way, a happy conclusion to the other Lassie movie starring Elizabeth Taylor. Has all the excitement of seeing someone grown up, doing something worthwhile as an adult, things not always going to plan, but somehow ending up happily. A feel-good movie that kids will love and remember.

Format: VHS Tape
In this movie, Lassie actually plays Laddie, Lassie's harum-scarum son who can't seem to do anything right, but Joe Carraclough stands by him, even when he is called up to do service in World War II. When Laddie stows away in Joe's bomber and is shot down with his beloved master, the search is on: separated from Joe, Laddie does his best to catch up with him, inadvertantly leading the Nazis directly to his master. This is an adventure film, not a sentimental story like its predecessor LASSIE COME HOME, but that's fine--I'm just marking it down a little for those four child actors who find Laddie after Joe disappears. These have to be the worst child actors in MGM history. Every minute with them is excruciating. Thank God they are gone from the story after about 15-20 minutes. Otherwise a terrific film.
