This movie grabbed my attention from the start, especially, being a Jack London novel. Edward G. Robinson is a phenomonal actor. He along with Gene Lockhart, deliver strong performances. The rest of the cast is lacking however.The characterization is terrible for most parts, especially the love interests. Towards the end it is tidious and boring, until the final scene. Some decent cinemetography for the year, and kudos for attempting this movie in a very dark manner. It somehow manages, however, to be entertaining. But, it is obvious much is left out, which leaves you unsatisfied...ie....Wolf's brother (or his absence). Watch it anyway to see what you think.

Choppy, inconsistant, but not too bad.Reviewed byRowi111Vote: 5/10
This is probably the best remembered version of the Jack London tale. A ruthless and savvy sea captain(Edward G. Robinson)reluctantly rescues a shipwreck and puts his unplanned passengers to work on his ship. Soon he is forced to deal with an enraged, rebellious crew. Directed expertly by Michael Curtiz.
Robinson is great as the meglomaniacal master of the ship. Outstanding performances from Ida Lupino and John Garfield. Also in supporting roles are Howard Da Silva, Barry Fitzgerald and Alexander Knox. Watch this in tandem with another Curtiz swashbuckler SEA HAWK(1940)along with popcorn shrimp and dramamine...talk about adventure.
This movie stands on it's own merits. It is a striking and strong movie about a brutish sea captain and the barbaric life aboard his vessel. The acting is very well done and it is well cast. Edward G. Robinson does a wonderful job as the captain, and Alexander Knox well portrays a man who has lived a soft life thrown into a harsh new world.
However, having first read the novel by Jack London, I was disappointed in the deviation of the story line. There are small differences at the beginning that continue to get larger until the end of the movie is dramatically difference than the end of the book.
If you can put the book out of your mind, or if you haven't read it, the movie is greatly enjoyable. Regrets to Jack London.
