If you watch Claude Jarmin Jr.'s lips closely, you will see that he is using the working title of the film, "Sun in the Morning". Jarmin had to redub the line when the film was released as "The Sun Comes Up". See more »
Nice, simple family film, a bit dated but still with enough charm and humor to make it agreeable--based on a novel by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, author of 'The Yearling'. Jeanette has her bitterness melted by Claude Jarman, Jr. and Lassie when she decides to retreat to the country to forget about the death of her son. An above-average Lassie film with a rather predictable ending after a tense fire sequence in which he rescues Claude Jarman, Jr. from a burning loft. A few nice songs by Jeanette, beautiful settings and some amusing performances by Percy Kilbride, Margaret Hamilton and others. Lloyd Nolan turns up for a cameo role. Pleasant entertainment. The blurb on the VHS copy I have cites a quote from the N.Y. Times which is so accurate: "Simple and sweet...Jeanette MacDonald has never looked lovelier."
