Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hills of Kentucky is regarded as the best of the Rin-Tin-Tin vehicles, largely because it is the most readily available. When famine hits the Kentucky hinterlands, Rinty is set free by his masters, who can't afford to feed him. Though he goes through a period of feeling rejected, the doggy star remains loyal to the Human Race. In a beautifully photographed climactic sequence, he rescues both schoolteacher Dorothy Dwan and his canine lady friend "Nanette" from a watery grave. Also featured in Hills of Kentucky are Jason Robards Sr. and Rin-Tin-Tin Jr.
