ACE TO THE RESCUE (Jan, 1942)
ACE TO THE RESCUE
THE old habit, in vogue when mother was a bathing beauty, of going to the beach to be rescued by a handsome lifeguard, is now out-of-date. Today’s pretty swimmer—at least, in California—trains the dog to do her rescuing.
Here you see Ace, a year-old Alsatian shepherd dog, who was trained to do all kinds of stunts for the movies, but who excels at pulling lovely young things out of the drink. All you have to do is scream for help—and Ace will do the rest.
Ace was trained by Earl Johnson, whose dogs have been famous for their movie manners, and it took him only two months to learn his life-saving duties. His father, however, was the famous movie canine, Lightning.
