Roddy McDowall and Lassie Lassie and Joe Carraclough [Roddy McDowall] in this publicity shot from Lassie Come Home. The short story "Lassie Come-Home" was originally published in The Saturday Evening Post and author Eric Knight was encouraged to turn it into a novel.

Trivia: The Saturday Evening Post got its name from the fact that, when it was founded, most cities had at least two mail deliveries a day (New York City had five). The Post was delivered in Saturday evening's mail.
