RIN-TIN-TIN: THE LONE DEFENDER (R-1940) CGC LOBBY CARD SET OF 8 CGC NM/MT 9.8

THE LONE DEFENDER (1932) Having basically bankrolled the struggling Warner Bros., the era's most popular canine, Rin Tin Tin, signed a $5K-per-picture contract with Poverty Row operator Nat Levine. The result, a 15-chapter serial, featured Rinty opposite veteran genre star Walter Miller. When Rinty's owner is murdered for his secret gold mine, the dog joins forces with Department of Justice agent Ramon (Miller) to catch the killer. Rinty, inevitably, is soon suspected of having killed a valuable colt and sentenced to death (shades of a previous Rin Tin Tin vehicle, The Night Cry, 1926). He is saved in the nick of time by Ramon and his juvenile sidekick, Buzz (former Western star Buzz Barton). The villain (Robert Kortman) then kidnaps the dog and forces him to reveal the location of the gold mine. Ramon, Buzz, and the dead prospector's lovely daughter, Dolores (June Marlowe of Our Gang fame) manage not only to save the dog once again but also bring the killer to justice. Sold on the states rights market as a "talkie" (or should it be a "barkie"?), The Silent Defender had long, drawn-out silent sequences interspersed with stilted dialogue.

This lobby card set is from the 1940 re-release of the film.
