The Yukon Gold Rush: A savage dog and a lonely man each respond to THE
CALL OF THE WILD, that primordial release of primitive urges, in their
It should be understood immediately that this movie only borrows the
title and a few incidents from Jack London's classic novel. And at that
point the comparison between the two should end. This film, rousing &
adventurous, is able to stand on its own merits. An excellent cast,
fine production values (notice particularly the care with which Skagway
& Dawson are depicted) and location shooting in Washington State are
the film's strongest assets. The plot, meant solely for entertainment,
is pure hokum...
Clark Gable brings his trademark masculinity to a role that didn't
require a lot of stretching of his thespian muscles. But in essentially
playing himself he is perfectly cast. One cannot overcome the suspicion
that London's original story was reworked for the star. Gable had been
through this before - remote setting, forces of nature, beautiful
woman, adultery. Think RED DUST in the snow.
Loretta Young is the beautiful woman. From scene to scene, no matter
what the hardship, she remains living proof that a first class
Hollywood makeup job can withstand the worst ravages of the Klondike.
This is perhaps too harsh. Like Gable, little more is required of her
than to exude physicality. She is indeed a treat to the eyes, even if
her inclusion in the plot is patently ludicrous. (The on screen
attraction between Gable & Young wasn't faked. A daughter, ostensibly
'adopted' by Young in France, would be the result.)
As Gable's sidekick, comic Jack Oakie has one of his best screen roles.
Getting to play most of his scenes strictly for laughs, he adds
chuckles to the story which, one assumes, would have outraged London.
Twisting his usual pomposity to a sinister bent, English character
actor Reginald Owen is memorable as the film's villain. Dangerously
wicked, he makes us want to know more about this man called Smith, with
money to burn and a raging temper. The screenplay, wisely, leaves his
biography up to the imagination of the viewer.
Sidney Toler & Herman Bing are very good in small roles. Movie mavens
will recognize Arthur Housman, veteran of many Laurel & Hardy comedy
shorts, as a Skagway drunk with a surprisingly mean punch.
The affection between Gable and Buck, the great St. Bernard with whom
he shares so many scenes, is obvious.
