Rating:
G
Benji is a 1974 family movie written and directed by Joe Camp. It follows the adventures of Benji (Higgins the dog, of Petticoat Junction fame), a stray mutt who is from a small town where everyone knows him by a different name. He is eventually adopted by a family with two children, Cindy (Cynthia Smith) and Paul (Allen Fiuzat). When they are kidnapped by a group of criminals led by Riley (Tom Lester), it is up to the fearless Benji to find a way to rescue them. Told entirely from the dog's point of view, and featuring some very impressive and emotive acting from the canine star, Benji became an unexpected box-office sensation, starting a franchise that would spawn six sequels. Benji features guest appearances by Frances Bavier (The Andy Griffith Show's Aunt Bea) and Edgar Buchanan. The movie's theme song, "I Feel Love" by Charlie Rich, won a 1976 Golden Globe award.
