Storyline

Jack Conroy is a young gold hunter, who seeks gold in the enormous and the snowy deserts of Alaska. One day, he saved a mixed dog-wolf from the hands of a cruel man, and a brave friendship develops between the two. The dog-wolf, who is named "the white fang" for it's sharp and white teeth, was left alone after his mother was killed by a hunter. After a while, the white fang was taken from Jack, by a man who put him in an illegal dog fighting pen to fight other dogs. White Fang becomes a professional, experienced and a cruel killer. But unexpectedly after a long time Jack meets him again and they renew their friendship. When a group of criminals wants to steal Jack's gold, White Fang is the only one who can help him to fight them off. Written by rsilberman

Trivia

Basil Poledouris was hired to write the film's original score, having worked with director Kleiser on The Blue Lagoon (1980). His score was rejected in mid-production in favor of one from Hans Zimmer. Unusually, both scores were fully recorded, one in London and the other in California, and pieces written by both Poledouris and Zimmer appear in the finished film. See more »

White Fang
16 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i remember watching this film when i was kid back in 1991. I was and still am a lover of Wolves, and this film really got to me. I just purchased the DVD last night, and am so excited to re-live what was once my all time favorite movie. The acting and the scenery in this film are amazing, i can still remember sitting in my bedroom watching Ethan Hawke's character walking up that huge slope to get to the top and meet with the people he is going to mine gold with. Along the way White Fang comes along and helps him and protects him. It is one of the greatest movies having to do with the gold mining and wildlife. White fang was my hero as an animal as i was growing up, and i had always wished that i could find a wolf, and live in alaksa with it by my side.
