The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is paying homage to the canine stars of the big screen tomorrow night with its “Hollywood Dogs: From Rin Tin Tin to Uggie” at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater. I haven’t found that it’s being telecast yet (at least not in Ohio) but I’m hoping they will make it available either online or at a later date on TV.
In honor of the show, check out Julie-Ann Amos‘ Top 10 Dog Film Stars of All Time.
