Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Columbia's dog-and-boy "Rusty" series galloped ever forward with Rusty Leads the Way. This time, young Danny Mitchell (Ted Donaldson) and his canine pal Rusty (played by "Flash") befriend blind girl Penny Moffatt (Penny Waters). Feeling cheated by life, Penny resists all efforts to cope with her handicap. But with Rusty's help, the girl gains a new lease on life and agrees to adopt a seeing-eye dog. In addition to Ted Donaldson, John Litel and Ann Doran make return appearances as Danny's understanding parents. Way, way down on the cast list is young "Wayne Hickman," who of course grew up to become Dobie Gillis' Dwayne Hickman.
