Foreign Film Friday - We Think the World of You (1988)

One of the most beautiful canines ever to grace the big screen, Betsy plays “Evie” in this British adaptation of J.R. Ackerley’s classic 1960 novel. Betsy, only eighteen months old at the time of filming, was a long-coated German Shepherd Dog trained at Animals Galore of Surrey, England.

The newest film adaption of an Ackerley book is another German Shepherd Dog film, My Dog Tulip (2009), though this one is animated.

In NTSC format, We Think the World of You is still only available on VHS, though you can get a PAL DVD in the UK.

This movie is profiled in detail in Wonder Dogs: 101 German Shepherd Dog Films (see top right sidebar).

Produced by British Screen Productions, Channel Four Films, Gold Screen
