When it's time to settle down to home movie nights with doggies sharing our hearths, hearts and popcorn, what film should we choose?
For some time now I have been compiling a list of exciting Cairn Terrier movies. Many of these pictures have won Oscars, Golden Globes
and BAFTAs as well as other notable awards, nominations, and statues.
Most of these Cairn movies are available for home viewing in
either VHS or DVD formats; a few are unavailable for any viewing as of this publication. If you know of any films featuring Cairn
Terriers I missed, please email me so I can watch them, verify the canine actors are Cairn Terriers and add them to the list. Sadly,
as I previously mentioned, some films have not yet been released to United States of America home viewing formats. If they become
available, I will give more plot details.
When there is a star next to the title on the list, it is a film known to have starred
Terry the Cairn a.k.a. Toto. I use both her names to refer to her throughout this list. Terry was featured in so many movies that
even her owner Carl Spitz lost track. Some sources say she is known to have performed in 11 films. She is documented to have been
in at least 17 films. I list her in 22 so far.
After Terry's fame grew, her name was officially changed to Toto. You can
read all about Terry in the autobiography “I TOTO” by Willard Carroll, a book you can purchase on this site's shopping page. "I Toto" provided
me with a partial list of the films starring Terry both currently available and those not yet available to view at home.
Some of the
films on this list star a Cairn Terrier owned and trained by the famous Weatherwax family named Rommy. The Weatherwax family also
worked with Terry and is best known for owning, breeding, and training all of the famous collies named Lassie from film and television.
Their Cairn Terrier Rommy was Terry’s pup.
I want to send a special thank you to all the Cairn fanciers, film historians and film fans
who have contacted me with movies that do, and do not, have Cairns in them. You have helped me make this list as solid a resource
as it can be.
(The author lists television and movie material viewable in USA so that she can confirm the correct breed of dog.)

you watch 1939's "The Wizard of Oz" here's a little something to watch for. Did you know that in the "Apple Orchard"
scene of that film, Toto's on set trainer, Carl Spitz's assistant Jack Weatherwax, was costumed as one of the rebellious trees to
give Toto commands? Look closely. He's hidden in a tree off to the left of the scene.
