Directed by Irving Pichel

Screenplay by Laslo Vadnay, based on a story, written by Ted Allan, which has also been published as a children’s book under the title “Willie the Squowse”.



“Rupert” was portrayed by both a trained squirrel and a puppet animated through stop-motion photography.


“The Great Rupert” was producer George Pal’s first feature film, after many years working on the “Puppetoon” series.




On the day before Christmas, down-on-his-luck entertainer Joe Mahoney (Jimmy Conlin) rehearses his trained squirrel Rupert in his shabby apartment, but his last hope is shattered when agent Phil Davis (Chick Chandler) informs him that the talented rodent has no box office potential. Dejected and penniless, Joe is evicted by his landlord, Frank Dingle, who lives next door with his wife Kate and son Peter (Tom Drake). After setting Rupert free in the park, Joe encounters his old friend Louie Amendola (Jimmy Durante), who used to have a human pyramid act with his wife and daughter Rosalinda, but has since fallen on hard times.…..




Please read all the details of this listing so you know exactly what you are buying.


What will I receive?

Your film will come on a DVD-R disc in a plastic DVD sleeve with no artwork. The title of the film will be written on the sleeve for your convenience.
