Daily Reel - A Dog of Flanders (1959)

Canine star Spike appeared in many less-known works than the film he is still best remembered for: Old Yeller (1957). Among them, The Silent Call (1961) and this adaptation of Ouida’s famed story in which he plays Patrasche.

Spike, a rescue dog trained by Frank Weatherwax, also had a son who carried on the legacy by costarring in Island of the Blue Dolphins (1964).

Produced by Twentieth Century Fox
