First Three Lassie Films on DVD
An August 24 release:

Lassie Come Home

Son of Lassie

Courage of Lassie

The photo of Elizabeth Taylor on the Lassie Come Home cover is actually from Courage of Lassie. In the original film Taylor's character is either in a dress or, once, in a riding outfit. Hmmn. Didn't they want to show her in a dress?

I rather resent her presence there. The film is about Lassie and her devotion to Joe. Priscilla is only a supporting character; if she wasn't played by Elizabeth Taylor, she wouldn't even be on the cover.
