Call of the Wild: Dog of the Yukon is a 1996 movie. The screenplay by Graham Ludlow is based on Jack London's classic novel The Call of the Wild (1903), is narrated by Richard Dreyfuss, and stars Rutger Hauer. The Hollywood Reporter said it was, "... a pleasant surprise. Much more faithful to Jack London's 1903 classic than the two Hollywood versions." The New York Post claimed Ludlow's adaptation was the "best version yet of Jack London's classic story of survival."Three Leonberger dog 'actors' (one female, and two males) played the starring dog Buck. The breed used in this adaptation was not the one identified in the novel, but the look is similar. Jack London describes Buck as a huge, four-year-old half-Saint Bernard and half-Scottish shepherd dog.
