Jonathan Harvey (Paul Kelly) is Lassie's master, a gold miner in the 1870s. His mining partner, Lin Taylor (Bruce Cowling), gets a bad case of gold fever and, because he wants Harvey's share of the gold, tries to arrange his partner's death in such a manner that Lassie will be blamed. It's

last film for MGM.
