1.0 out of 5 stars Viewing quality terrible May 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's easy to suppose that one is getting episodes from the 50s TV show here. No, what you get are four discs, each with a 12-episode Rin Tin Tin serial from the 30s and 40s. Nothing wrong with that, but the quality of the transfers is such that you will have to be a real Rinty enthusiast to get through even one episode. The serials are hardly good enough to merit expensive restoration, but hard to watch without it. One hopes someone can find better elements to put out a more watchable DVD someday. Good example of getting what you paid for.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the TV show September 2, 2008
By Denny
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is not the TV series which is what i was hoping for. The movie serials are a little dated and Rinnie is not always the star. I have watched it once and will probably never again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great deal for folks who love old serials March 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had seen this set and the one that preceded it, Legend of Rin Tin Tin also by Mill Creek, on store shelves but had overlooked it while assuming that it was 48 episodes of the old Rin Tin Tin TV show of the 1950s. When I happened to look at the fine print, I saw that it was really four full Saturday movie serials. In order, they are:

The Lone Defender (1930, rated 5.4 on IMDB)
The Lightning Warrior (1931, 5.7)
The Law of the Wild (1934, 6.5)
The Adventures of Rex and Rinty (1935, 6.5)

The first two are still steeped in their stagy, silent roots, and the deteriorated quality of the prints doesn't help any. The two more "modern" serials, also starring Rex the Wonder Horse, have better prints and more mature acting. But down deep, all of these were designed to amuse children with lots of good guys fighting bad guys.

In an interesting departure, Mill Creek also included a short original documentary (C) 2011. It consists of one unnamed guy seated before a non-moving (green screened?) background, talking to the camera for about a paragraph at a time. He's not an awful reader, but he's no Robert Osborne. Every now and then, he seques into a short clip from one of the serials in the set. All in all, it's a nice gesture, but the insight it added was about what you'd get from reading Wikipedia.

In sum, I rate it five stars for four full classic serials at such a cheap price, then subtract one for the erratic print quality. If you don't like serials, avoid this set. If you do like serials, give it a try.

PS, For more quantity cliffhangers, check out a copy of the 12-serial Classic Serials Megapack: 150 Episodes while you can.

These serials show the original Rin Tin Tin and Rin Tin Tin Jr. in action. Rin Tin Tin died in 1930, and so one of his offspring took over the main acting role in the mid 1930s. This is 15 hours of the Original that was the basis of the later on TV series which contained later generations of Rin Tin Tin; I believe 4th generation of Rin Tin Tin were on the TV series.

The video quality starts rough, but smooths out over the first thirty seconds of the serial. No drops of quality from Chapter to Chapter, it stays constant. The audio is descent, especially for the age. Again, we're talking about early 1930s, just crank the volume up on the TV a bit and enjoy these classics. Just watching Rin Tin Tin and his actions are worth the price of admission. This includes some very humorous and interesting actions between Rin Tin Tin and other people as well as animals.

I can honestly say this was the best $5.00 I spent in along time (Wal-mart). If you don't mind the image quality, which I can say is not bad considering its age (main flaw being a slight fade in the center of the film, but it so faint it is barely noticeable), and audio which all the dialogue can be heard with a slight volume boast of your remote then purchase this. This DVD purchase made me a fan of Rin Tin Tin, and i'm sure it will make even more fans in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Movies July 8, 2009
By zip439
Format:DVD
These four Rin Tin Tin films are from the 1930s. The black & white recording quality is very good. Each film is one DVD and is broken down into 12 episodes. These are movie house films, not the TV series, that I was familiar with in my youth (1950s) with a young boy in a fronter fort.

1.0 out of 5 stars legend of Rin tin tin September 29, 2008
Format:DVD
I feel deceived. It is true that this is about the orginal Rin Tin Tin. However the clips are also about a wild horse. I was expecting the TV version with the Corporal Rusty.
