Lassie: The Extraordinary Story of Eric Knight and ‘The World’s Favorite Dog’
Peter Haining (ed)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Lassie’s creator, Eric Knight, drew on first-hand knowledge of 1930s’ economic hardship & his collie dog Toots to write ‘Lassie Come Home’. His magazine story about an impoverished family from the Yorkshire Dales forced to sell its beloved sheepdog to a Scottish landowner was to establish Lassie as ‘the world’s favorite dog’. Although MGM’s film of 1943 made a star of Elizabeth Taylor, it also marked the rise to Hollywood stardom for the canine savior with human intelligence. Lassie the dog was to feature in six more movies before transferring to U.S. TV in 1954. Her fame grew with every passing year, with one collie after another being recast in the role. “Examines the history of the rough collie as a breed on both sides of the Atlantic.” Illustrations.
