In the classic tradition of Disney's OLD YELLER, THE BISCUIT EATER proves that nothing warms the heart like the story of a boy and his dog. Lonnie (Johnny Whitaker) and Text (George Spell) are two friends determined, against all odds, to turn a misfit hound into a hero. Tennessee farmer and dog trainer Harve McNeil (Earl Holliman) tells his son Lonnie that his dog, Moreover, is a good-for-nothing "biscuit eater." But Lonnie and Text won't give up on this untrainable outcast ... determined to beat the odds in time to prove he has championship potential! Featuring valuable lessons about honesty, friendship, and fair play, THE BISCUIT EATER is heartwarming family entertainment.
