Mike

USA, 1957 (MIFF 1958, Programme 28)

Director: Edgar M. Queeny

Mike is the story of a black Labrador retriever &ndash: "companion of man, conservator of birds" told in a straightforward manner amid the quiet background of his kennel and the splendour of the timbered swamps of Arkansas' Grand Prairie. His early life, his training, his first days in the marsh, and finally his "graduation" to the expert retriever class is affectionately told.

This film was made for Ducks Unlimited of U.S.A. and Canada, an organisation dedicated to the cause of migratory waterfowl conservation.
