Public Domain Programmer Accidentally Is Also Great LA Time Capsule
Some nasty people with INSIDE INFORMATION have stolen bonds entrusted to the care of our stalwart hero. Will the famous Rin Tin Tin rip-off dog Tarzan capture the crooks before a couple of dunderheaded private investigators have our poor firm-jawed hero arrested?
OK. This is just a B movie from long forgotten early 30s production company. But, instead of the usual outdoorsy plot these "wonder dog" movies tend to have, this one takes place in LA, using actual locations (and showing a lot of beautiful cars). You can watch this movie for the decent enough "smart dog" action scenes, and b-western style fisticuffs. Or you can sit back and get an awfully good look on how the streets of 1934 LA looked.
I preferred the streetscapes, showing an LA that is no more. But I will admit that this dog had more personalty than most of the breed, and that the "funny dog tricks" scattered through the picture, were actually pretty amusing.
So, not a total wast of time.
