Despite the challenges of his many imitators, there was only one Rin Tin Tin, as proven in such tailor-made vehicles as Rinty of the Desert. The plot is summed up by the title, as Rinty rescues heroine Audrey Ferris and hero Carroll Nye from all manner of desert dangers, both natural and man-made. The film's high point of tension finds the canine star rescuing Nye from a deep pit (and yes, there are a few snakes in the vicinity). Audiences and critics alike carped that Rinty of the Desert contained too many extraneous scenes in the heroine's bedroom, but the non-dog fans in that crowd had to watch something. The film was directed by D. Ross Lederman, who later helmed several episodes of the Rin Tin Tin TV series.
