Disney Studios' first and best boy-and-his-dog film, set in Texas in 1969. 15-year-old Travis Coates (Kirk) is left in charge of the family farm while dad Jim (Parker) is away on a cattle drive. When his younger brother Arliss (Corcoran) brings home a stray dog, Travis is displeased but lets him stay. Yeller saves Travis's life, but contracts rabies in the process. Keep tissue handy, especially for the kids. Strong acting, effective scenery--all good stuff. Based on the novel by Fred Gipson. Sequel "Savage Sam" released in 1963.
