“Those Amazing Dobermans!” [with James Franciscus starring as eye candy] was part of the Doberman trilogy.
First was “The Doberman Gang” followed by “The Daring Dobermans”.
“Those Amazing Dobermans!” was a much watered down finale to lessen the ‘scariness’ of the dogs in the first two.
[dressed in circus costumes, for example]
On late night TV, I saw the first one when I was about 13, asked God for one to protect me from my pedo uncle and seriously, a “stray” showed up in my yard less than a week later.
[and it’s not like we had packs of them wandering around lost back then, mind you]
Sweet, gentle Caesar was my first hairy Angel, the much more ‘serious’ Tito was given to me about a year later and many more followed.
Life without at least one isn’t really living.
They didn’t have false teeth in the movies, they had cotton wads stuffed up under their lips to show off their perfectly natural awesome pearly whites...:)
/humming “Mack The Knife”, now
If you wanna see unbelievably goofy “false teeth” on a Dobermann, rent “Zoltan: Hound Of Dracula” sometime.
Unintentionally hilarious movie.
Along with the goofy ‘vampire fangs’, they dumped corn starch all over the poor dog to make him look “undead”.
The great Jose Ferrer also stars, even though he pretty much acts like he’s just killing time until the check clears.
I briefly considered naming Odin “Zoltan” when he was a pup, just for enigmatic giggles.
[but then came to my senses and named him after one of his famous ancestors, instead]
Cotton balls? I read a review that said they had capped those dogs’ teeth for the movie. I wondered how they did that and wondered if the dogs minded. Was the Fred Astaire movie part of the Doberman trilogy, or was it made separaaately.
Sorry about your uncle but glad you got a dog for protection...
