Any child growing up in the 50's remembers the Disney movie Old Yeller. Dorothy McGuire as the mother, Fess Parker as the dad, Tommy Kirk as the fourteen year old boy,Kevin Corcoran as the younger boy and Chuck Connor as the stranger. Beverly Washburn is the young neighbor girl. And Old Yeller. What a dog! What better companion for a young boy than a dog. Especially in the old west. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Fred Gipson it tells the story of a fourteen year old boy and the adventure with him and his dog, Old Yeller. He is left in charge of the ranch while his dad is on a cattle drive. Old Yeller steals some meat and tears down the fence as well as stealing the boy's heart. Then you are led through the adventure the boy has becoming a man with the best dog a boy could have along for the ride. If you haven't seen this movie you need to. It will make you shake your head, cry,hurt, and hoot with laughter. I remember Sunday evenings and Disney movies when I was quite young. This is one of the best.

@Jessicalynnt .....I can sure understand that. I have to watch that type of movie when I am strong enough to withstand it.

My parents were strict when I was growing up, so I could only watch old movies. And, as a child, Old Yeller was my favorite. Apparently, I'd watch it over and over. Which is weird because it makes me too sad to watch nowadays.

Strict about movies? That is sad. It is a good one. I like to wait a while in between times I watch a good one. But, I do enjoy watching them again.

@AmbiePam ......It is good you saw the ones you did get to see. I'm glad my parents weren't that strict. Never had a problem with profanity either.
