Loosely based on a true story about a dog named Balto who helped save children from the diphtheria epidemic of 1925 in Nome. In the cartoon version of the story, the wolf-dog hybrid (voiced by Kevin Bacon) is an outcast among the other dogs because of his wolf heritage. When the epidemic hits, there’s no way to get the antitoxin in, except by sled dog. Balto is determined to save a girl named Rosy (whose dog Balto is in love with) and the other children, but his chances to lead the expedition are sabotaged by the town’s top dog, a Malamute named Steele. When Steele fails to come through, it’s up to Balto to save the day, which he does, spectacularly.
There’s nothing supernatural in this Hammer film, but the atmosphere is terrific, as is Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes. And who wouldn’t be spooked to death by the sight (and eerie sound) of the dreaded “Hound of the Baskervilles” if you encountered it on the moors at night? It’s predicted to take the life of the last living Baskerville heir (Christopher Lee), but is ultimately revealed to be merely a Great Dane wearing a hideous mask.
A dog who plays basketball? That simple premise (starring the real-life b-ball playing sensation Buddy) propelled this film to a box-office hit and launched an entire franchise.

He’s found by a boy (Kevin Zegers) who just lost his dad … and the rest is family film history.
You’re surely aware that there’s an Instagram “Tom Hardy Holding Dogs,” and the actor cuddling and kissing the baby pit bull from this movie has been featured often.

And the pup leads Hardy’s character to make some important, plot-turning connections.
Without Toto, Dorothy would never have gone on her adventure to Oz—she’s running away from her aunt and uncle’s farm so mean Miss Gulch won’t have Toto killed for chasing her cat. Toto’s clever enough to escape from the villain’s basket on her bike and run back to Dorothy. In Oz, Toto saves the day by running to summon Dorothy’s friends when the Witch kidnaps her. And it’s the scrappy terrier who pulls aside the curtain revealing the great wizard is a fraud. But it’s also Toto that jumps out of the balloon that was going to take Dorothy back to Kansas. That all works out pretty well, too. After Terry, the dog who played Toto, broke his foot on set, Judy Garland took care of her. She tried to adopt her, but her owner and trainer wouldn’t let her go. Terry (whose name was changed to Toto in 1942) appeared in 16 films total. You can visit her monument at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.

It can be presumed that he followed her because, as the Will-o’-the-Wisps can lead anyone to their fate, Mor’du (having encountered the wisps before as a human) might have wanted to kill Merida as she is the one following the wisps, or even deeper, she could be his key to setting himself free of his curse.
