Moreover me the biscuit eater movie
The Biscuit Eater is a 1972 Walt Disney Productions film released by Buena Vista Distribution based on a short story of the same name by James H. Street. It is the last 'One Boy and his Animal' themed film made by Disney, as this subgenre would eventually grow out of fashion. The 1972 film is a remake of a 1940 film starring Billy Lee as Lonnie.
The story revolves around a German wirehair pointer named Moreover, who has a strong relationship with a red-headed boy named Lonnie (Johnny Whitaker) despite his mishaps. Moreover, is dealt to Willie Dorsey (Godfrey Cambridge), a gas station clerk, but Lonnie and his best friend Text regain possession of the dog. They train Moreover, to be a prize-winning bird pointer, entering him in a field trial.
The dog was considered untrainable by its first owner, Lonnie's veterinarian father, but the two twelve-year-old boys take the time to make Moreover, an excellent working example of his breed. Much to the chagrin of Lonnie's father, Lonnie and Text decide to enter Moreover, in the state championship field trial. Moreover, does well, and an incident makes the boys think that Lonnie's father (Earl Holliman) will lose his dog training job if his dog, last year's champion SilverBelle, loses to their dark horse entry.
