    They made The Biscuit Eater in my home town and I enjoy giving copies of it away as gifts. My grandmother had a party at her house for young Billy Lee (Lonnie) when they were making the movie and invited a bunch of area kids that were his age, which included my mother. There's a great pic from that party in a local history book.

    I can't count the number of times I've read Where the Red Fern Grows ... by far my favorite dog book of all time.

    I voted for Marley just because he was SO LABRADOR!! , I think though my favorite all time dog movie, if I had to choose only one, would be Where the Red Fern Grows... OMG I ball every time I see that one.
    Sucker for any dog movie- I also watch 8 Below everytime thats on too and cry like a baby....

    Completely agree. That was a great book! One of my favorites growing up.

    I think there are two options here... best dog movie or book and best Hollywood dog in the movies or on TV.

    Best dog book or movie: Where the Red Fern Grows and Old Yeller were exceptional stories and movies, but the dogs in them were not exceptionally trained.

    Best trained dog for movies or TV: has to be a toss up between Rin Tin Tin and Lassie. The problem with Lassie is ... there were many dogs who played Lassie and there was more than one Lassie in a single movie or TV episode.

    Rin Tin Tin had a few doubles, but not many. He did most of his stunts. He was an exceptional dog. He was trained, of course, but he was uncanny in that he could do many things with a minimal amount of training. There's a book out about him. We have a copy. It is an amazing story about an amazing dog.

    This being said, I would have to vote for Rin Tin Tin as the best dog in Hollywood. If you were born before 1950, you'll remember him and know who he was. The OP should get this book. If it is a young teacher, he/she has probably never heard of Rin Tin Tin.
