Never saw the original. In fact there are a few versions of this story. I will make the effort to at least watch the Edward G. Robinson version after watching this mess. I can NOT fault the actors....AT ALL. The director completely 'lost it' on the 2nd episode. I'm not going to give anything away but so many red flags came up that it really brought down the whole production. The story is good but the director took it in some direction that escapes logic. Halmi Jr. fell quite a distance from his polished Dad. Still, it is interesting to watch and try to make any sense of why no one stepped in and righted this misguided work of the wonderful Jack London.
