Rin Tin Tin was a Star with true breeding.
28 April 2002 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Rin Tin Tin was a great Star, a great Actor, and was the love of my childhood life before getting my own dog. My brothers and I never missed one of his shows or movies. RTT is ably supported by Bobby Blake and Donald Woods, two wonderful actors in their own rights. Rin Tin Tin single-handedly made German Shepherds (or Alsatians, if you prefer) the most popular dog in America. The inexpressible nobility, love, and the overwhelming intelligence in those beautiful brown eyes give ample support to the belief that people should aspire to be more like dogs.
