According to IMDB, these are the Top Five movies Dexter would like. They list 25 of the top dog movies, and these are the cream of the crop that made it to the top. Some I don’t know. Some I’ve never seen. They are all legendary in their own right, however.
1. Lady and the Tramp
Who can say anything badly about this movie. Its Disney and dogs at their finest. Its a love story, a story of separation and reunification; two lovers separated by their societal class. Heartwarming. I’m glad its number one.
2. Lassie Come Home
Wow. 1943. They are really reaching into the vault for this one. A story of a boy and his dog, his rescue dog. Lassie escapes from her new owner and travels across Great Britain. No boys in wells in this movie, but still a great family-friendly talking picture to bring back some memories.
3. Clash of the Wolves
Continuing the theme of description movie names, Clash of the Wolves as a title gives you a good idea what happens. This one is Rin Tin Tin, another golden oldie western, about a Miner and his dog.
4. Pups is Pups
Clearly, the use of the English languages hasn’t improved much since Number Four on our list was produced. I’ve never seen this one. The comments describe it as a “talking short” recorded in the nineteen thirties. While not unsafe for children, I read that you should probably have a talk with them before watching it.
5. The Pooch
Heavy in star power, The Pooch casts Norman ‘Chubby’ Chaney, Jackie Cooper, Dorothy DeBorba, Allen ‘Farina’ Hoskins in this 20-minute short as they enter their dog in a dog show.
Surprising were the movies that ended up way down the list like Old Yeller, Turner and Hooch, The Incredible Journey, Call of the Wild, and the Wizard of Oz.
