Personal Quote:

Trainer Lee Duncan: "Rintintin has never been whipped and the wonderful things this dog accomplishes on the screen are accomplished through kindness and instruction - but never with the whip. Even in scenes where Rintintin is supposed to be beaten, I never permit a whip to touch the dog." See more »

Trivia:

After he became a box-office star, he merited a private chef who prepared his daily lunch of tenderloin steak - which he consumed as an ensemble played classical music to help his digestion. See more »
