The Trial of Old Drum Reviews

Reviewed By: Buzz McClain

Updated from a true story that happened in 1870 in Missouri, this Animal Planet original production is a bright, heartwarming family film suitable for all ages and temperaments. It moves a might slow here and there, but the gorgeous scenery and sturdily constructed scenes. It's a lot better than the Lassie feature film from 1994. It's standard boy-and-his dog stuff straight from the 1950s, but that hasn't been seen much, and young children will find it fresh. And the dog is a great actor.
