Big Henry and the Polka Dot Kid tells the tale of a young orphan who wins his battle to save the life of an old blind dog. He must convince his uncle that there are values far more important than just being practical. The warmly human drama features action, humor, and superb performances by Ned Beatty, Estelle Parsons and Chris Barnes. “A moving story and a rare visual treat. It evoked a storm of discussion among viewers in every grade from K-8. It points out that angry confrontations and frustrations are not the only possible responses when children have problems with adults — or with their own peers.” —Film News. Produced by LCA. Based on Luke Baldwin’s Vow by Morley Callaghan.
