Author Susan Orlean stopped by the Riverside Metropolitan Museum recently for a talk and to sign copies of her new book, “Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend.” The original dog was found as a pup by Lee Duncan, an American soldier in France during World War I, who brought him home to Los Angeles. The dog was trained and starred in more than 20 movies. It died in 1932, and five years later Duncan moved to Riverside onto a ranch near Fairmont Park Golf Course, which he called “El Rancho Rin Tin Tin.” The museum has one of the most comprehensive Rin Tin Tin collections available, and Orlean used it for research.
