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 »

Good family-oriented movie from the Walt Disney Studios proves that sometimes less is more. The story is about a Yukon gold hunter's (Ethan Hawke) friendship with the titled Alaskan husky. Jack London's wonderful novel is methodical both in the book and on the silver screen (this is a major plus). Every frame here is a joy as wonderful editing and cinematography enhance a deceptively smart screenplay and noble direction. Hawke, one of the more under-rated actors of his generation, proves he can handle a major production and take the reigns as the primary focus. Supporting actor Klaus Maria Brandauer shines throughout. One of the finer family films produced in the 1990s. 4 stars out of 5.
