Dick Powell , Peggy Dow with Charles Drake , Joyce Holden
King, a german shepherd dog, is willed six million dollars by his eccentric owner. Ellen Hathaway , the beautiful private secretary to the deceased millionaire, is named as trustee and recipient of the fortune in the event of King's death. Not surprisingly, she becomes dogged by fortune hunters who would rather see King out of the way ... Dick Powell stars as Rex Shepherd - without doubt his most unusual screen role - in this ingeniously funny film.

The competition this year has taken place over three days and last night one dog became Supreme Champion.

The Cline Affair
At eight o'clock on 10 July 1980, a Los Angeles doctor walked into a hospital in Jerusalem. The doctor, Martin Cline , had with him phials containing human genes grown up in bacteria-genes that he hoped might save a 21-year-old Israeli girl with only a few years to live. He was about to perform the first genetic engineering experiment ever on a human being. Cline might have believed that it would earn him a place of honour in medical history. Yet a storm of controversy surrounds the experiment. Many scientists fear this shot in the dark was premature and has done more harm than good.
So was Cline justified in going ahead? What happened to him-and to the patient?
