THE  BISCUIT  EATER

 

  First released in 1940 The Biscuit Eater was re-released as a remake in 1972 by Walt Disney. We dare you to watch this with dry eyes!  The story revolves around a German Wirehaired Pointer named Moreover who is given to a gas station clerk, but Lonnie (Johnny Whitaker) and his best friend Tex regain possession of the dog where a strong relationship develops with the red-headed Lonnie and the dog.  Considered untrainable by its first owner, Lonnie's veterinarian father, the two twelve-year old boys take the time to train Moreover to be a prize-winning bird pointer and enter him in the state championship field trial. Moreover does well, and an incident makes the boys think that Lonnie's father will lose his bird training job if his dog, last year's champion SilverBelle, loses to their dark horse entry. As you might expect from a Disney movie, all turns out well in the end.

 My Dog Skip

 

 

 

The popular memoir by author Willie Morris became this family comedy-drama about a boy and his dog. Young Willie Morris (Frankie Muniz) is a shy eight-year-old in 1942 Yazoo City, Mississippi, who is more comfortable reading than playing sports. A target for local bullies, Willie's only real pal is his older next-door neighbor Dink Jenkins (Luke Wilson), once the town's living sports legend and a big brother figure to Willie. When Dink is shipped overseas for service in World War II, Willie's mother Ellen (Diane Lane) buys a Jack Russell named Skip against his father's wishes (Kevin Bacon). The smart and playful Skip gets his owner into a series of adventures, quickly turning Willie into a popular, accepted kid who even wins the affections of the school's prettiest girl, Rivers Applewhite (Caitlin Wachs). Dink returns from war branded a coward after an incident that occurred in combat but finds an unexpected ally in Jack, a fellow veteran. The movie teaches us about friendship, family, love and dedication. The role of Skip was played in later scenes by the star of television show Frasier.
