This classic tale centers on a homeless, scruffy dog who saves a pair of children from their kidnappers. Benji (played by veteran canine actor Higgins) is an unusually bright dog, and the clever ways in which he operates made this film an instant family classic.

All the kids wanted to see this little dog on the big screen in the 70's. But now the little mutt is mostly forgettable. It was a family movie cash-in, like many of the films today.
