One of the best of the Christmas specials
29 December 1999 | by LiedzeitSee all my reviews

In the end sixties and early seventies they used to give us a four part great TV production of some classic novel. This one along with "Die Schatzinsel" was the best of them. Actually they took a number of Jack London´s stories and melted them into an unforgettable adventure. Of course no one will ever forget the potato scene. But what impressed me more was the wonderful love story between Hump and Maud Brewster the way Wolf talks about his ambition and his failure: "My mistake was to have ever opened a book." And of course the way the two main Characters Hump and Wolf Larrson would meet again and again with the most believable and mesmerizing love-hate relationship I know of. When Hump is left alone on this tiny island and only hatred and as he says life itself forces him to continue walking it is the greatest moment in movie history Great music score, too. The final part is a bit disappointing, the only reason why this is not among the very best films of all time.
