Lassie Come-Home is a novel about a Rough Collie's trek over many miles to be reunited with the boy she loves. Author Eric Knight introduced the reading public to the canine character of Lassie in a magazine story published December 17, 1938 in The Saturday Evening Post, a story which he later expanded to a novel and published in 1940 to critical and commercial success. In 1943, the novel was adapted to the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer feature film Lassie Come Home starring Roddy McDowall as the boy Joe Carraclough, Pal as Lassie, and featuring Elizabeth Taylor as a young girl who was sympathetic to Lassie's plight. The motion picture was selected for inclusion in the United States National Film Registry. A remake of Lassie Come Home entitled Lassie was released in 2005.
