Horrible destruction of historical facts
24 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My great grandfather was "Soapy" Smith, the villain portrayed in this film. I have written the true biography of Jefferson Randolph ("Soapy") Smith. and you can plainly see in the movie that the production company had never picked up a single book on Soapy. Very very little, if any, of the history in this horrible film on Jack London, is correct.

I also had known Pierre Berton, the author, before he passed away, whose book the film company used for the movie. His book was, and still is, regarded as one of the best non-fiction histories of the Klondike gold rush. Seemingly, the only part the film used from his fantastic book, was the title. He felt They had tricked him, and he fought like the dick'ins to get his name taken off the film credits and get his name back.
