Call of the Wild Story line: Jack Thornton has trouble winning enough at cards for the stake he needs to get to the Alaska gold fields. His luck changes when he pays $250 for Buck, a sled dog that is part wolf.  It was Buck’s job was to keep him from being shot by an arrogant Englishman who was also headed for the Yukon.

Shorty Houlihan had spent time in jail for opening someone else’s letter with a map of where gold is to be found. Buck helps Jack win a $1,000 bet to get the supplies he needs to head to the Yukon. Smith bets a thousand dollars against Buck being able to pull a heavily loaded sled 100 yards. The sled weighs a thousand pounds. Buck manages the feat, enabling them to buy what they need with their winnings.

Jack and Shorty head off for the Yukon with the map, Buck and other dogs. Along the way, they find and rescue Claire Blake from wolves. Her husband is Martin Blake’s son who had the original map but left to look for food and never returned. Claire refuses to leave without knowing John’s fate, but Jack drags her away. Sharing the hardships of the trail on their way to Dawson, her initial loathing of Jack gradually melts away. When Jack and Claire pet Buck one night, fingers touch…

During the filming of Call of the Wild, Clark Gable impregnated Loretta Young, which resulted in Young’s hushed-up pregnancy and the birth of their daughter Judy Lewis (1935–2011). The pregnancy was widely assumed to be the result of an affair. However, in 2015, Linda Lewis, Young’s daughter-in-law, stated publicly that Young had confided to her before her death that Gable had raped her. She said the two had flirted on-set but there had been no affair. Source: Wikipedia
