All Dogs Go to Heaven
All Dogs Go to Heaven is an animated film directed and produced by Don Bluth and released by United Artists in 1989. The film tells the story of a dog, Charlie B. Barkin (voiced by Burt Reynolds), who is murdered by his gangster business partner Carface Carruthers, but who forsakes his place in Heaven to return and take revenge. On his return he frees a young orphan girl, Anne-Marie, who Carface was holding captive because of her ability to talk to and understand animals (giving Carface insider information about who to bet on in races). At first Charlie means to exploit Anne-Marie's gift too, but soon comes to learn he will have to change his ways if he is to earn his place in Heaven again.
