Synopsis
Rin Tin Tin and his owner Capt. Red Johnson meet J. B. Mooney at an airport. Mooney has secret plans for a government rocket. He, Johnson, and Rinty are escorted from the airport by men who are supposed to be government agents, but they slug Johnson and Rinty and kidnap Mooney. After going to the rocket plant, Johnson and Rinty trail the spies to a hidden valley that holds ancient cliff dwellings, as well as Mooney and the spies.
