This screen adaptation of Jack London’s famous short story “Jack London’s To Build a Fire” dramatizes the encounter of man and nature at its most dangerous extreme. “To Build A Fire” exemplifies London’s fascination with men who did not recognize that nature was often deadly because it was so deceptively beautiful. The story has many other dimensions, but the contrast between nature’s appearance and reality is captured powerfully. A Robert Stitzel Film.
