Movie or TV Productions

White Fang (1991)

This has become the go-to movie adaptation, mostly because it sticks reasonably close to the book, but also because it features Ethan Hawke in his young-and-hunky phase.

White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf (1994)

They should have subtitled this "The Search for Gratuitous Profit."

White Fang (1973)

This was an Italian production, starring former movie cowboy (and Quentin Tarantino obsession) Franco Nero. Like most movie adaptions, it, um, takes liberties.

Challenge to White Fang (1974)

And again with the unnecessary sequels.

White Fang and the Gold Diggers (1975)

Apparently, any movie set in Alaska with a wolf or a dog as a main character has to be called White Fang. Sadly this movie does not feature women on the hunt for rich husbands. Oh, how we wish it did.

White Fang (1997)

Bad animation? Embarrassing voice effects? Story that bears only a passing similarity to the novel? It's all here.

White Fang (1936)

Even back then, they made giant sweeping changes to the story.

Jack London on his Ranch

Young Jack London

He looks like he's right out of one of his stories, doesn't he? He might as well be Weedon Scott.
