Facts about

Though Lassie is supposed to be a female dog, this and all subsequent Lassie films have used male dogs to play her, supposedly because males are easier to train.
Pal who portrayed Lassie earned a salary of $250 per week while the young Elizabeth Taylor was paid a mere $100 per week.
After a nationwide hunt for a suitable dog for this movie failed, MGM called in dog trainer Rudd Weatherwax, who had many purebred collies, but Pal, his one-year old male collie (who had no papers), easily won the role. Pal retired at age 5, after which all subsequent Lassie films used direct descendants of Pal.
