Storyline

Located on the outskirts of Hollywood are Rennie Renfro's kennels, home to some of the greatest dog actors in the Hollywood movie business. It takes much work to get just the right performance by any animal required for any given movie. Using one of his star dogs Daisy, Rennie demonstrates some of his training techniques. Because the animals work in sound movies, they must be trained using silent cues. These training techniques are put into practice as a multitude of different animal actors and their respective trainers show what the animals can do in a revue styled performance. Written by Huggo

Absolutely Pathetic!
5 January 2014 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

This kind of garbage was more or less "accepted" so many years ago because most didn't realize what it actually took to make these animals do what they do. But it was only through fear and pain that a circus or Hollywood could make them do all these things. The man behind the curtain is a real piece of garbage. Watching the lions and tigers being abused. You see a man outside the cage with a gun ready to kill them if they get too "aggressive." Of course they might get too aggressive. THEY'RE LIONS AND TIGERS! Back then, and even now, too many people running these "shows", were not even questioned about How the animals became so trained. They just did what they did and so be it. At least now many f them are seen for what they are, abusers.
