Just when it didn't seem possible that Columbia had any room left for another B-picture series, along came The Adventures of Rusty. The title character is a German police dog, trained to be a vicious killer. Lonlely little Danny Mitchell (Ted Donaldson) believes that there's still some kindness left in Rusty, and tries to retrain the dog. In a parallel development, Danny's new stepmother (Margaret Lindsay) attempts to befriend the sullen youngster. The part of Rusty is played by Ace the Wonder Dog, who made the rounds of the B-picture mills throughout the late 1940s. The Adventures of Rusty proved popular enough to warrant several sequels.
