Though not credited, the star of this film is Rin Tin Tin, the loveable German Shepard who was a box office smash in the early twentieth century (sometimes given credit for saving Warner Brothers from bankruptcy). The Silver Trail is packed full of Rin Tin Tin fun along with his owner Rex Lease. The beautiful and spunky Mary Russell is the leading lady, and the trio must bust up some claim jumpers who’re stealing land. When it becomes clear that corrupt government officials are behind the problems, things get hairy. Rin Tin Tin is always charming, and The Silver Trail provides wholesome family entertainment that is truly timeless.
