Dog acting double dedication
 
This is my first "original" video - a double dedication primarily yo the dog acting pioneers.

Jean (a.k.a the Vitagraph Dog - border collie)
Strongheart (German Shepherd - black and white film clips)
The original Rin Tin Tin (German Shepherd - sepia colored film clips).

Doesn't Florek seem a perfect CSV service dog?:rock_3
The film was made in 1937!

I can't find any information on Florek - was he Polish? Where can I find other information on him? It's interesting to see films like this that early in Europe. I didn't think dogs in film took off until after the 40's.

I have no idea. The dog is not even mentioned among the cast: http://www.filmpolski.pl/fp/index.php/22507

I found a PhD about the actor A. Dymsza in which the comedy "Niedrajda" is analyzed in great detail, but the dog is refered to as a GSD only, the alter ego of the main character, Florek.

I asked about the dog on Polish wd. Maybe somebody will know more.

Thank you - and if they speak English feel free to have them PM me, I'd like to have some international influential dogs on my site.

BTW - what's a breif rundown of what that scene is about? Was Florek popular (like Strongheart / Rin Tin Tin)?
