Ebert reviews “My Dog Tulip”

Hot on the heels of my finishing J.R.Ackerley’s only novel “We Think the World of You”, comes news that the film version of his memoir “My Dog Tulip” is now in release. Roger Ebert reviews the film (****), and shows some footage here.

The novel was made into a 1988 film starring Alan Bates & Gary Oldman. It seems to have just earned a new DVD release, perhaps on Tulip’s heels. It will be available in April.

Novel and memoir work the same material from Ackerley’s life with his German Shepherd dog Queenie.
