GREYFRIARS BOBBY: THE TRUE STORY OF A DOG (G, 1961) 91min
Genre: Family, Drama. Dir: Don Chaffey. Country: USA.
In Scotland, 1865, an old shepherd and his little Skye Terrier Bobby go to Edinburgh.
But when the shepherd dies of pneumonia, the dog remains faithful to his master and takes to sleeping on his master’s grave in the Greyfriars Kirkyard — despite a caretaker with a ‘no dogs’ rule.
When Bobby is taken up for being unlicensed, it’s up to the children of Edinburgh to decide what’s to be done.
A beautiful and touching film based on a true story.
