Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Canine star Rin Tin Tin makes his all-talking (or is it all-barking?) debut in Warner Bros.' Frozen River. In characteristic fashion, Rinty braves the elements to rescue heroine Nina Quartero from the villains, a gang of cutthroats and thieves. The doggie hero also comes to the aid of little Davey Lee, a saucer-eyed child star best remembered for his appearance opposite Al Jolson in The Singing Fool (1928). Reportedly, Rinty didn't immediately warm up to Lee and tried to take a nip out of the kid during one scene, but the four-legged star was quickly mollified by his trainer Lee Duncan. Its behind-the-scenes intrigue notwithstanding, Frozen River proved that Rin Tin Tin was capable of weathering the talkie revolution.
