I've only seen Old Yeller ('57) once, I think, but it's commonly regarded as one of the most emotionally affecting family-friendly flicks ever released. What I really mean is that it delivered a highly traumatic climax (tearful kid forced to shoot beloved dog because of rabies). Millions of youths were devastated, and Bill Murray was one of them -- he recalled crying over the shooting scene in Stripes. And I'm sure that the late Tommy Kirk, the teenaged star of that classic Disney film, was proud when he watched Murray's schpiel.
