The Biscuit Eater is a family film directed by Vincent McEveety based on the novel by James H. Street that centers on the relationship between a young boy named Lonnie (Johnny Whitaker) and a German Wirehaired Pointer named Moreover as they deal with a few mishaps along the way, including a surly gas station clerk, Willie Dorsey (Godfrey Cambridge), and an uninspired veterinarian father, Harve (Earl Holliman). In order to prove his dad wrong, Lonnie and his pal Tex (George Spell) decide to train Moreover as a bird pointer. When they enter him into a state championship trial, the boys learn the risk if Moreover actually wins over Lonnie's father's champion, SilverBelle, and whether or not they should go forward in the competition. The Biscuit Eater is a remake of an earlier film of the same name starring Billy Lee.
