(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

THE CALL OF THE WILD (2020): The Clark Gable adaptation of the Jack London story had to shift the focus from the dogs to the people for not having enough to say about the dog. This version uses motion- capture CGI, which helps solve that, and this is the first version I know of that is centered on the dogs. The special effects are below standard but it doesn't matter much in this improved version. Released 02/21/20; available on DVD from Netflix and on Amazon Prime. Rating: +2 (-4 to +4)
