Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Canine star Rin-Tin-Tin's glory days as one of Warner Bros.' biggest moneymaking personalities were swiftly coming to an end when he was top-billed in Rough Waters. This time, Rinty is owned by crusty old seafarer Captain Thomas (Edmund Breese) and his pretty young daughter Mary (Jobyna Ralston). A pair of escaped criminals (Walter Miller and Dick Alexander) intrude upon Thomas's tiny fishing hut, taking the captain and his daughter hostage. If only Mary could get word to her boyfriend, motor-cop Cal Morton (Lane Chandler)! But fear not: Despite a bullet wound in his side, Rin-Tin-Tin tears the bad guys to shreds and delivers them to the nonplused Cal.
