    "He believed the dog was immortal." So begins Susan Orlean’s sweeping, powerfully moving story of Rin Tin Tin’s journey from orphaned puppy to movie star and international icon. From the moment in 1918 when Corporal Lee Duncan discovers Rin Tin Tin on a World War I battlefield, he recognizes something in the pup that he needs to share with the world. Rin Tin Tin’s improbable introduction to Hollywood leads to the dog’s first blockbuster film and, over time, the many radio programs, movies, and television shows that follow.

    "Not so legendary"

    Story

    If you are expecting a wonderful story about a dog, this isn't it. It's the bio of an antisocial man who loved dogs, followed by the people who made a dog story into a movie and television franchise. Rich in details, if you love Rin Tin Tin, it's everything you ever wanted to know and a lot more of what happened behind the curtain. It's not for those of us battling cynicism.
