Today in Movie History...

Today in Movie History:

GREYFRIARS BOBBY (1961) was unleashed! I know I was probably too young to see it first run (and they sure didn't get too many first run movies at the Babcock Theater in upstate NY), but what a heartbreaker. (Think Old Yeller with a Scottish burr or The Three Lives of Thomasina, canine division, with a plaintive story rooted in reality). Och, yer a fine bonny little Skye Terrier, Bobby...

Man, what a cast of great character actors! Donald Crisp (in his sixth decade in movies), Gordon Jackson, Joyce Carey and Laurence Naismith.

Not me. My dog loving mother would not have let us miss this. The problem is, I don't remember it. Haven't seen it since the original run! I remember a president named Kennedy. Something about a baseball player named Roger Maris. This movie has been relegated to "so they tell me" status. Remember this? (Not really...)
