Greyfriars Bobby ★★½ 1961

A true story of a Skye terrier named Bobby who, after his master dies, refuses to leave the grave. Even after being coaxed by the local children into town, he still returns to the cemetery each evening. Word of his loyalty spreads, and Bobby becomes the pet of 19th century Edinburgh. Nicely told, with fine location photography and good acting. Great for children and animal lovers. 91m/C VHS, DVD . Donald Crisp, Laurence Naismith, Kay Walsh; D: Don Chaffey.
