The Great Adventure Details


The real name of director "[[Performer~P221338~Paul Elliotts~gianfrancobaldanello]]" is [[Performer~P221338~Gianfranco Baldanetto~gianfrancobaldanello]], indication enough that The Great Adventure is not a Hollywood product. Adapted from a story by [[Performer~P265433~Jack London~jacklondon]], the film features [[Performer~P61310~Fred Romer~fredromer]] (aka [[Performer~P123523~Fernando Romero~hernanromero]]) as a young boy exploring the wilds of Alaska in the company of a large white dog. During a stopover in a gold-rush town, the boy is targeted as a sucker by the town boss ([[Performer~P54755~Jack Palance~jackpalance]]). Our hero is also flummoxed by a sexy dance-hall girl ([[Performer~P14235~Joan Collins~joancollins]]). As the story unfolds, the boy is threatened by such less-imposing adversaries as wild wolves and bad weather. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
