| Better representation of the book!
Having seen several versions of "Call of the Wild," I must say that this version is my favorite. It follows the book well and the narration by Richard Dreyfuss helps move the story along. One drawback is the dog that portrays Buck does not look like he should based on the description in the book. Overall though, this was an enjoyable movie. It has great scenery and a good cast. I used this movie for an English class that was reading Call of the Wild. We watched two versions of the movie, the Charleton Heston version and this one. All my students agreed that this version followed the book much better and was more enjoyable to watch.
