20th Century Fox Home Entertainment present "Clark Gable Collection 1" (The Call of the Wild/Soldier of Fortune/The Tall Man) --- (Dolby digitally remastered)...featuring top performances by actors to die for from the '30s, '40s and '50s with outstanding plot lines and screenplays...from memorable films that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat completely engulfed in the story and every scene...so pop some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the movie.

First up we have "THE CALL OF THE WILD" (1935) (95 min. B/W)...under director William Wellman, producer Darryl F. Zanuck, novel by Jack London, screenplay by Gene Fowler and Leonard Praskins, original music by Alfred Newman...the cast include Clark Gable ( Jack Thornton), Loretta Young (Claire Blake), Jack Oakie (Shorty Hollihan), Frank Conroy (John Blake), Reginald Owen (Smith), Sidney Toler (Joe Groggins), Katherine de Mille (Marie), Lalo Encinas (Kali), Charles Stevens (Francois), James Burke (Olle), Duke Green (Frank). . . . .our story has Clark Gable and Jack Oakie headed for gold in them thar hills...Gable purchases a sled dog Buck who is part wolf and saves his life once or twice during the film...Loretta Young is searching for her husband Frank Conroy who leaves her to search for another clear vein of gold...a closeness develops between Gable and Young during the journey, when Gable realizes he must help find her husband and makes things right.....the interaction between Gable, Young and Oakie has a moral and lifting ingredient not found in todays films...once again Gable steals the scenes as part hero, devil may care and honorable character that he is.

Special footnote, actor Clark Gable was signed in 1930 by MGM's Irving Thalberg.

This collection of Clark Gable's three films for 20th Century Fox is probably more for fans than casual viewers, but there's still much to enjoy here. The big disappointment is that William Wellman's 1935 version of The Call of the Wild is only the cut (by some 14 minutes) wartime reissue version rather than the original. Any resemblance to anything written by Jack London is purely coincidental: it's set in the Yukon, and there's a dog called Buck in it who has to pull a thousand pound weight in one scene for a bet, but that's about it. But this Buck is a huge St Bernard and he's only a bit player in a gold rush romp tailored for Clark Gable - but then at the height of his popularity, audiences would probably have burned the theatres to the ground if he'd played second fiddle to a hound. More famous for Gable and co-star Loretta Young emerging from the snowed-in on-location shoot with an illegitimate child, it's an enjoyable enough yarn even in the abridged reissue cut that now seems to be the only version surviving, although it shamefully throws away Reginald Owen's excellent villain, who deserves a much better exit than he gets here.

Best of the bunch is Soldier of Fortune, a crowd-pleasing potboiler from the days when Technicolor was glorious (okay, it was shot in De Luxe, but the same principle applies) and CinemaScope really was CINEMAScope. There's not much action (the final rescue is laughably easy), but Ernest K. Gann's script is snappy fun, Clark Gable and Susan Hayward play well off each other, Michael Rennie and the colourful supporting cast more than earn their pay, Hong Kong probably never looked better on screen and there's a pleasingly lush romantic score from Hugo Friedhofer.

Clark Gable only made three movies for Fox studio. The three are complete in this fine Fox collection. Each movie is enclosed in a plastic snap case, displayed with movie poster art. The Clark Gable photo covered on the box slip-case is very attractive. The image resolutions are high standard for these movies which are available for the first time on dvd. Watching "Call of the Wild" added to my delight with the crystal clear beautiful black and white digital image of this 1935 golden age Hollywood classic. Who can beat Clark Gable, Loretta Young, and Jack Oakie for classic movie viewing from Hollywood's golden era! If you haven't seen "Call of the Wild", then do consider my assessment that it is a delightful production that will hold your attention from beginning to end. Fox has also included an optional commentary from an author who offers an informative backstory on the making of this film. A fair amount of the commentary is devoted to Clark Gable and Loretta Young's relationship during the filming of "Call of the Wild".As for the other two movies, I have only been able to skim through. From viewing those briefly, the image resolution appears to be very good. "Soldier of Fortune" was a box office win at the time of its premiere release. I do remember viewing it years ago on tv. From what I recall, the movie was entertaining and the tv image quality was not as pleasing as it is on this Fox dvd, so I'm sure my interest will be peaked while viewing an entertaining movie projected from a higher standard dvd. Highly recommend this product. Kudos to Fox for providing a superb collection for Clark Gable fans, movie classic enthusiasts, and/or those who simply appreciate good movies!
