Call of the Yukon (1938)
You'll be grateful that it's quite a short film
Call Of The Yukon is a low-grade film from a cheap studio. The acting is unbelievable and the plot does very little to sustain one's interest. In fact I'd say the canine performers add more to the film than the humans. Yet if you look past this then you may perhaps enjoy the film simply for its location shots of the frozen north and its depiction of wildlife, if that's your kind of thing.
The one thing that I thought was clever in the writing was how the behaviour of the dogs in the film reflect the attitudes of the main characters. But, this did little to save what was really just a hackneyed attempt at an adventure film. I was so grateful when this cheesy and sloppily chopped together film ended. And not a minute too soon...
