Overview

One of the most intelligent, versatile, popular breeds of dog in the world has also been Hollywood's top dog for nearly ninety years. Wonder Dogs profiles feature films starring German Shepherd Dogs from 1921 to 2010. Including major Hollywood blockbusters as well as obscure independents, Jordan Taylor goes behind the scenes with dogs and films from around the world, bringing their stories to life in ways that will intrigue dog and film lovers alike.

Taylor shines a light on evolving technical, aesthetic, and social sensibilities through the decades. Her eloquent narrative covers many aspects of the business: How the introduction of sound to film impacted animal performers, training methodologies and treatment of canine actors, the use of the dogs as agents of propaganda during wartime. In an industry known for its cutthroat and political past, the facts are often hilarious, at times disturbing, and always fascinating.
