"Flame" was another German Shepherd Dog
that made numerous films in the 1940's and into the 50's. He was quite talented and drew lots of people to the  movie theaters.
I believe he took over for the aging "Ace".

I believe during the war years of the 1940's, Mr. Duncan spent most of his time
training dogs for the Military. In 1947  he introduced
Rin-Tin-Tin, III in a movie titled
"The Return of Rin-Tin-Tin".
This movies was also released as "The Adventures of Rin-Tin-Tin" and co-starred a young
Robert Blake, Claudia Drake and Donald Woods. I know of  no other films starring
Rin-Tin-Tin, III.

"Rin-Tin-Tin, IV"

On October 15, 1954, "The Adventures of Rin-Tin-Tin",   made it's debut to
Friday Night Television. The show was set in the Old West and featured a heroic German Shepherd Dog,
Rin-Tin-Tin" with a small boy as his companion, "Rusty".   The boy had been orphaned in an Indian raid
after which he and his dog "
Rinty" were adopted by the Calvary soldiers of Fort Apache.
Rinty and Rusty were made honorary soldiers and helped keep Law and Order on the Old Frontier.  
The series ran until
August 28, 1959.
Three German Shepherd Dogs filled the roll in this TV series. Two of which were descendants of the original Rinty
and one I believe to be  an offspring of  another canine star, "
These were the last of Mr. Lee Duncans "Rin-Tin-Tin" dogs which were ever to hit the screen again.
On Tuesday,
September 20, 1960,  Mr. Duncan died of a heart attack at his ranch in Riverside CA.
He has left many exciting and happy memories with people of  at least four generations.
To the best of my knowledge, there were only two movies starring "
Rin-Tin-Tin. IV"  that were made for  the theater.
"Rin-Tin-Tin - Hero of the West" (1954)  and "The Courage of Rin-Tin-Tin" (1954).
Both were take-offs from the TV series.
"The Adventures of Rin-Tin-Tin" - A six Video set featuring 12 episodes from the 1950's TV series.

"The Mountain Eagle" (1926)
A early Hitchcock movie in Germany.
The German Shepherd Dogs name is unknown
and the film is Lost

Although today there are a few movies that may have the appearance of a German Shepherd Dog
they are surely not as frequent as it were years ago. More than half of the early
Silents and
the first
Barkies are Lost and are probably never to be seen again. I feel lucky to have found the ones
I have and been able to view them as many may never have that pleasure.
Some of us
Baby Boomers remember the 1950's, 60's and 70's  where you had
"The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin"  with   Rin-Tin-Tin, IV and Rusty
"The Roy Rogers Show"  with  "Bullet" - "Corkey and White Shadow"  with "Chinook"
"The Littlest Hobo"  
with "London" - "The Adventures of Champion"  with "Rebel"
"The Bionic Woman" 
with "Maximillion" the Bionic German Shepherd Dog
"The Tonight Show" with  "Leica"  who appeared occasionally with his master Jack Parr 
"Longstreet"  with "Pax" who starred with James Franciscus

I apologize if I missed any others but I did the best I could.
Hopefully someday there will be another
"Strongheart", "Rin-Tin-Tin", "Peter the Great", "Lightnin",
"King", "Ace", "Flame"
or some other German Shepherd Dog to come crashing thru to save the day.
