Jaws of Steel is not the name of a carnival sideshow act, but rather the title of this standard 1928 Rin Tin Tin vehicle. In this one, the doggy hero is abandoned in the desert while in pup-hood. Upon reaching maturity, Tin Tin has undeservedly earned the reputation as a killer canine. Thus, the human characters spend most of their time hunting down the dog in hopes of collecting a huge bounty. Tin Tin redeems himself by rounding up a gang of crooks, whereupon he is reunited with his rightful owners. As was often the case in the Rin Tin Tin pictures, Warner Bros. contractee Jason Robards Sr. played second fiddle to the tail-wagging star.
