All Dogs Go to Heaven
Directed by Don Bluth • 1989 • United States
Starring Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise, Judith Barsi
Set in 1939 New Orleans, this colorful, song-filled family favorite from independent-animation legend Don Bluth features the voice of Burt Reynolds as Charles B. Barkin, a roguish German shepherd with the charm of a con man and the heart of a marshmallow. Out for revenge against his double-crossing former partner, a pit bull known as Carface, Charlie finds himself guardian to a lonely young orphan named Anne-Marie, whose ability to talk to animals leads this unlikely pair on an adventure packed with thrills, laughs, tears, true love, and the often surprisingly dark moments that separate Bluth’s films from the Disney pack.
