Rusty: A Dog's Tale (USA video title: Rusty: The Great Rescue) is a 1997 family film directed by Shuki Levy, starring Hal Holbrook and Rue McClanahan.[1]

Synopsis Edit

The film is about two orphans named Jory (Blake Foster) and Tess (Danielle Keaton). Their cousins Bart (Charles Fleischer) and Bertha (Laraine Newman) try to take them away from their grandparents because the two kids have trust funds from their dead parents. When Bart and Bertha kidnap the newborn puppies, Rusty the dog (Matthew Lawrence) decides to save them.

Partial castEdit

Of the film's 2006 re-release on DVD, Andre Dursin of The Aisle Seat offered that the film, a "very cute, impossible-to-dislike tele-film from Shuki Levy and Haim Saban easily trumps their more bombastic children’s fare (like the Power Rangers).[2]
