THE STORY OF RIN-TIN-TIN Now, the wonderful success of Rin-Tin-Tin in the movies was due to a number of things: first and foremost, of course, his own intelligence, his highly developed instincts, which included an ability to put himself into roles and situations; second, the vision of Lieutenant Duncan; and last, constant training, teaching, in fact a thorough, systematic course to develop technique, which every actor needs. But care, great care, was taken to keep the dog's instincts, his prowess, at top notch. All the technique in the world meant nothing without Rin-Tin-Tin's wonderful birthright gift.
