Editorial Reviews

Rin-Tin-Tin, as a pup, is lost while being transported across Alaska and is adopted by a wolf pack. As a grown "wolf-dog" Rinty rescues McGrail who has been waylaid while carrying furs across Canada and abandoned for dead. We believe this to be the earliest of the Rin-Tin-Tin films to survive. 75 minutes

This movie is surprisingly well- shot and not a bit sentimental and the viewing quality is very good.

As a long- time German Shepherd admirer and having owned many of the breed over the years, and after reading the recent book by Susan Orleans on Rin Tin Tin, the most celebrated canine movie hero of all time, I just had to order his first and most famous movie - from 1923! I was not disappointed. This movie is surprisingly well- shot and not a bit sentimental and the viewing quality is very good. I recommend it to any Shepherd lover - or doglover for that matter.

"Where the North Begins" is of interest for two reasons. The first is that it is the earliest known film to feature Rin Tin Tin, not the character, but the actual dog found by a U.S. G. I. in France during World War I. The second reason is that it is an entertaining gem from the era of the silent screen.

This is the story of a dog that is lost while being transported across Alaska and Canada and is adopted by a pack of wolves. When Rin Tin Tin meets Gabrielle (sic) it has to choose between the wolves and a human companion. The viewer eagerly follows as the tale of crime and love unfolds. Rin Tin Tin is the real hero of the show, not only because of his bravery, but also in his acting which displays almost human qualities.

Sure the camera work is primitive and the lack of dialogue forces the viewer to use his imagination, but that is the charm of it. Frequent writings on the screen enable the viewer to follow the story. In contrast to the high tech contemporary productions, "Where the North Begins" takes the viewer back to the delightful early days of cinema.

An added feature is "Hustling for Health", a short silent comedy starring Stan Laurel. It needs no dialogue. Just watch it and laugh.

For those that have been intrigued by the Rin-Tin-Tin described in the book by Susan Orlean, this is a great movie that illustrates the incredible nature of this dog. There is also a certain charm in watching an old silent movie from a long gone era and a much simpler time in society. This is also one of the only surviving original films of this great dog. Sit back and enjoy.

This movie is a great addition to my library. I recently read a book about Rin Tin Tin and it was fun to see the original.

This is the oldest surviving Rin Tin Tin Movie. As usual Rin Tin Tin is the best actor by far in this movie. He is the star and gives a good performance. All of his movies follow a successful story line of him being falsely accused and redeeming himself. He is not to be confused with Rin Tin Tin Junior or other variations such as TV programs. He is an aggressive and dynamic star, who comes to the rescue with energy.

This is the movie Lee Duncan (the guy who found and trained Rinty) wrote for his special dog. These early Rin Tin Tin movies are rough to watch and understand; but before you slam the film quality consider how well you'll be looking and sounding after eighty years and no preservation.

It's a children's action movie made by a bunch of guys with an amazing dog and a couple cameras. I love these movies. I'm handicapped and travel with a German Shepherd service dog. Decades after the TV show's re-runs left the air I still hear parents telling their children "Look, there's Rin Tin Tin".
