Description by OLDIES.com:
The town of St. Suzanne is being terrorized by Indian raids. The marauding natives are led by a masked spectre known as "The Wolfman." When a government agent is murdered while investigating the crisis, his brother, Allen Scott, soon discovers that the town harbors many secrets. At the center of this swirling cyclone of suspicion and violence is young Jimmy Carter, the recently orphaned son of the owner of the Carter gold mine. As Scott investigates the mysterious "Wolfman," he and Jimmy are repeatedly rescued by Rin-Tin-Tin, "The Lightning Warrior."
This action-packed serial was the final screen appearance by the world's first great animal superstar. Rescued as a pup during WWI from the blasted battlefields of France and brought to America, "Rinty" made his first film in 1923 and was an international star within three years, earning over $6000 a week at the peak of his career. One year after appearing in The Lightning Warrior, Rin-Tin-Tin passed away as neighbor Jean Harlow cradled him lovingly during his final moments. The film franchise started by this wonder-dog continued and later moved to TV, starring descendants he sired, with his bloodline continuing to this day.
