White Fang (1991)


Walt Disney Studio's beautifully photographed White Fang (1991) is loosely based on one of the all-time classic animal stories, Jack London's 1907 tale of the friendship between a young adventurer in Alaska's Yukon Valley and the white wolf-dog he rescues from a professional dog-fight promoter. In one his first roles after his breakthrough success in Dead Poets Society (1989), Ethan Hawke stars as Jack Conroy, whose search for his late father's lost gold mine is enlivened by his canine companion, played by Jed. Hawke has named Jack London among his favorite authors.

Dick Mackey, an expert in cold-weather wildernesses and a winner of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, served as a technical consultant on White Fang. Bart the bear, the hero of the Jean-Jacques Annaud's The Bear (1989), makes a guest appearance as a ferocious villain. The film's producers were given a commendation by the Humane Society for their exemplary treatment of the animal actors. The film spawned a sequel, White Fang II: Myth of the White Wolf (1994). An Italian film version of London's story, White Fang and the Hunter, was produced in 1975.

Screenplay: Jeanne Rosenberg, Nick Thiel, David Fallon, from novel by Jack London
