An unforgettalbe film by Jack London
8 January 2000 | by (Lake Isabella, CA) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film alot what I hated was that the people harmed the dogs. The film is about a dog named Buck taken to ben trained with other dogs. The film is also hosted by Richard Dreyfuss. This was a great film and also made me cry like I am today after I saw it. Watch the film or read the novel by Jack London.
