Clash Of The Wolves – Sliff Preview

17 November 2011 4:52 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the mid-1920′s, Hollywood’s most popular actor was not Charlie Chaplin, not Rudolph Valentino, not Lon Chaney. America was crazy about dogs. Not all dogs – just one in particular: Rin Tin Tin. The German shepherd ruled the box office and was so popular that he is often credited with saving the struggling Warner Brothers Studio from bankruptcy. Rin Tin Tin, at the peak of his career, received 10,000 fan letters a week, was paid a weekly salary of $6,000, and had a personal chef. St. Louis film fans have the rare opportunity to view a vintage silent Rin Tin Tin film on the big screen this Friday night when Cinema St. Louis shows the 1925 silent adventure Clash Of The Wolves with live music accompaniment as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival.

The original Rin Tin Tin starred in 26 films, mostly silent, between 1922 and his death ten years later. »
