Rin Tin Tin began his film career by playing the role of a wolf  in The Man From Hell’s River in 1922.  And he played a wolf in some other films, even though he didn’t really look much like a wolf.  Rinty’s first starring role was in Where the North Begins, which was made in 1923.  This movie made so much money that it probably saved Warner Brothers from going bankrupt.

Rin Tin Tin went on being a movie star for some years after that, and he was also the star of a radio series. He did his own sound effects on most of the radio shows until his death.  After that, his son, Rin Tin Tin, Jr. took over. When Rin Tin Tin died in 1932, he was 14 years old.
