A dog's life
25 October 2020 | by russjones-80887See all my reviews

Fur trapper Brule Conway gets his German Shepherd dog Rin Tin Tin Jr. to guard his furs. A rival trapper and his sidekicks use a female dog to lure Rinnie away in order to steal the furs. Rinnie needs to track the thieves in order to recover the furs.

One of the series of films about the famous dog. Acting and script are not of the highest standard but it's a way of passing time. Stars Grant Withers, Grace Ford, Monte Blue and, of course, Rin Tin Tin.
