I received this a couple of days ago. It's not only widescreen but anamorphic too, which came as a very welcome surprise. It's far from faultless, though, with lots of dirt around reel changes, grain and a somewhat soft-looking picture. Still, it looks quite decent - certainly much better than the cheap PD releases of various White Fang movies released in the US. The film itself is not in the same league as WHITE FANG TO THE RESCUE. The annoying little, badly-dubbed boy grated on my nerves, the dog isn't really very vital to the story and there are some badly choreographed, "funny" bar fights that play like the worst of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill. Fortunately, the film picks up considerably in its second half. There are good locations and action, and some really good actors. Not the best Italian White Fang film but well worth a look.
Wouldn't mind seeing this...

Does anyone know how many other kinds of films like these there were? I've seen quite a few and wondered if there are any more that I've missed out on.

CALL OF THE WILD (1972) with Charlton Heston seems to be the one that started the trend but Fulci's WHITE FANG (1973) and CHALLENGE TO WHITE FANG (1974) seem to have been quite popular too. One of my favorites is WHITE FANG TO THE RESCUE (1974) with Maurizio Merli and Henry Silva, but there's also Alfonso Brescia's WHITE FANG AND THE HUNTER (1975) with Robert Woods, Joe D'Amato's RED COAT (1975) with Fabio Testi, Gianfranco Baldanello's THE CRY OF THE WOLF (1975) with Jack Palance and Joan Collins, as well as two very obscure entries that don't appear to have English dubs: Maurizio Pradeaux's I FIGLI DI ZANNA BIANCA (1974) and Vito Bruschini's ZANNA BIANCA NEL WEST (1977).
I've got another Greek vhs somewhere to that I can't remember the name of, I'll try to dig it out.
Not heard of the Merli one before, can you start a thread on it Aarron? I'm on my phone at the moment otherwise I'd get on it.
