Overlooked Films: Rin-Tin-Tin's first serial - The Lone Defender

Yep, you guessed it. I'm still reading Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend by Susan Orlean. 

I've seen some of this 1930 serial, and it's pretty rough going. But it does feature the original Rin-Tin-Tin (at least in close-ups) and it produced some pretty cool posters.

I have never read or seen a Rin Tin Tin adventure. But his legend is well known in these parts.

I have to get me one of those pinback buttons. Rinty looks insane.

Well, not to add to the spam here, but I think any fan of the Sonics might just like the Go! Team, if I'm a representative sample...http://socialistjazz.blogspot.com/2012/04/catching-up-with-go-team.html

And Rinty does indeed. Poor WWI pup...the author of his memoir makes it clear he was no pussycat to work with...

I believe I read one of the Rin Tin Tin stories as a kid but I don't remember any details at all.
