The History of Rin-Tin-Tin, Movie Star


Rin-Tin-Tin, a German shepherd, icon of the 1920s and early 1930s, was as famous a movie hero as Douglas Fairbanks. His athletic feats astonished audiences -- he could scale an 11--foot, 9-inch fence, leap over chasms, and climb trees. His acting brought tears, laughter, and amazement. Thousands of children sent him fan mail, and he answered with a paw-printed photograph. Rin-Tin-Tin: The Movie Star puts Rin-Tin-Tin's life in the context of war-torn France, where he might have been born, and Hollywood, where he became a star. This book answers the questions: "Why did a dog become a movie hero at this particular time?" and "How much of the Rin-Tin-Tin legend is actually true?" The answers may surprise you. The book Rin-Tin-Tin: The Movie Star, tells the story as it probably really was. And take a look at Rin-Tin-Tin's blog:
