Trivia The Call of the Wild
The role of John Thornton, here played by Harrison Ford, was previously portrayed by Rutger Hauer in the 1997 TV adaptation of the story. Both actors famously appeared opposite each other as enemies in Blade Runner.
In the novel, Buck is half St. Bernard (giving him size) and half Scotch collie (a medium-sized herding dog similar to a border collie or Australian shepherd, with perked or half-flopped ears). This film adaptation is the first to correctly portray Buck's mixed-breed heritage.
Jean Louisa Kelly played the teen in "Uncle Buck". In this film, the dog's name is Buck.
