Storyline

Sylvia Burgess and her weak-willed brother Hal travel to the gold mine they have inherited in the frozen north. Accompanying them is their tough guide Weedon Scott. Along the way they are attacked by a pack of wolves led by the half-wolf, half-dog White Fang. In terror, Hal commits suicide. Later, though, White Fang, recalling his distant heritage among men, protects Scott from danger. At the mine, Scott passes himself off as Sylvia's brother Hal in order to keep her from being taken advantage of. Saloon owner Beauty Smith, himself hungry to take over Sylvia's mine, sees through Scott's ruse and has him accused of Hal's murder. Only through the help of White Fang and Scott's pal Slats does Scott have a chance to beat the rap and protect Sylvia and her mine. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Hard to find but worth the effort
12 June 2012 | by crmfghtrSee all my reviews

After years I finally was able to get my hands on this movie. A story told with more heart then subsequent versions. The black and white seems to lend itself better to the winter feel on the movie, hard to describe until you see it. John Carradine is the definitive version of Beauty Smith, well done indeed. The acting and direction is both competent, and with quite a healthy dose of humor. My only complaint would be the dog used is more akin to a German shepherd then a white wolf. There is a sweetness to this film also, and genuine warmth. Other then that, if you like the story of White Fang, this will warm your heart.
