The Call of the Wild
In this loose adaptation of Jack London's classic story, the role of Buck the dog is diminished, and the main focus shifts to the romance between prospector Jack Thornton and Claire, a young bride who is abandoned in a cabin by her gold-fevered husband.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Jack London's The Call of the Wild has been a difficult book to adapt to film, but this William Wellman-directed entry is still the best. It's probably one of the more interesting films from the first half of the '30s."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
