There are few things with greater power to send grown men spiraling into tear-soaked nostalgia than the story of a boy and his ill-fated dog. As Old Yeller has proved in many a wet-eyed screening, we’re permanently marked by our relationships with our pets. This 1957 film, based on Fred Gibson’s award-winning book, is filled with friendship and the scary act of facing adulthood. It’s a classic — just be sure to watch it with tissues in hand.
