Overview

Based on the Newberry Award-winning novel by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, this heartwarming tale of a boy and his dog reaches for greater significance and depth than the typical entry in the kids' movie genre. Blake Heron stars as Marty Preston, a kid who lives in a rural town with his mom and mailman dad Michael Moriarty. One day, Marty finds an injured beagle that's run away from its abusive owner, a hunter named Judd Travers Scott Wilson. Kindly neighbor Doc Wallace Rod Steiger tends to the dog's wounds, but Marty's father explains that they must return the beagle to its rightful owner. Travers continues to abuse the dog, and it runs away again, returning to Marty. The boy, who has named the puppy "Shiloh", attempts to hide the animal from his family in the woods, but a scrap with another stray dog leaves Shiloh hurt and in need of medical assistance once again. Now Marty's in deep trouble with his dad, until he comes up with a plan to buy Shiloh from the nocuous Travers. Shiloh inspired a sequel, Shiloh 2: Shiloh Season 1999.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Boy-and-his-dog movies don't get much more prototypical than Shiloh. In fact, it may surprise viewers that Shiloh was released as recently as 1996, since it's quaint and old-fashioned enough to have come out 30 years earlier. But something about Shiloh found an audience, or, at least, enough of one to prompt sequels in 1999 and 2006. The film is quite straightforward -- hunter abuses dog, dog finds boy, boy embraces dog, hunter tries to get dog back, boy fights to save dog from hunter's evil clutches. As this sequence takes a surprisingly long time to play out, other details color the film in, such as the fact that the nasty hunter Scott Wilson was mistreated by his father, and that the kindly veterinarian Rod Steiger lost a son and daughter-in-law to a car accident. So the film is not quite as fluffy as most live-action children's movies, but it does share with them a certain stagnant quality that has generally afflicted the live-action kiddie fare released by Disney, for example. Characterized by the dusty tones of a small country farm town, Shiloh lacks the colorful pop that makes animated movies so popular with the demographic. There's no doubt that Shiloh has its heart in the right place -- maybe too much. Parents probably appreciate it more than their kids, thinking it will serve a function for their kids that it probably doesn't. The dog sure is cute, but the modern generation of children grows increasingly less satisfied with such folksy simplicity, especially once they're old enough to choose for themselves.

    Poor dog

    I rate this 5 stars because I am an owner of a Beagle. I adore them so much and when I saw the owner mistreat the beagle it brought me to tears. To see this kid save this beagle from being seriously hurt touched my heart in everyway.
