James Stewart recalled that he accepted the role of the grandfather because it was the only "family-friendly" script he had been offered. After the movie received poor reviews and flopped at the box office, he decided to semi-retire from acting. See more »
Jamison takes Lassie to his estate in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she escapes. You see her running, chased by a helicopter, and she finally goes over what looks like a cliff. In the next scene she gets up and limps away, but suddenly she is in Zion National Park, which is in Utah. See more »
Unfortunately, this film came out at the time when families were really pulling apart and it seems that nobody wanted to sit with mom and dad and watch a family film. We grew up with a collie and, of course, what do you think her name was? I first saw this film on HBO and my good friend, a real hard core kind of person, was sitting with me bawling her eyes out! I have tons of Lassie movies and of course this was also added to my collection! I never get tired of Lassie, but then again, I grew up in the era of only three TV stations and we learned to appreciate what we had then. James Stewart did a fine job in this movie and because it was one of his last ones, of course I cherish it! Just watch it on a day you feel like crying; I guarantee it will bring the tears down your face....
