The Rin-Tin-Tins -- February 24, 2018

Motion Picture Magazine, June, 1927
In honor of the Lunar New Year, the Year of the Dog, here is Rin-Tin-Tin, the biggest dog star of all.  Lee Duncan, an American soldier who loved dogs, found Rinty and his sister with their dying mother in a damaged German kennel.  Duncan tried to bring the puppies to America, but the female died.  Duncan trained Rinty and got him into the movies, where he showed great natural talent.

This item shows Rinty, his mate Nanette, and five of their puppies.

The San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade is tonight. The parade has taken place since the 1860s.
