Sam Fuller's (The Big Red One) Hollywood movie isn’t perfect – but then that goes for most Fuller films.
His tale of a young actress who adopts a beautiful white Alsatian, only to discover it’s been trained to attack black people, is riven with gaping plot holes, messages hammered home and some less than impressive acting (in the lead, Kristy McNichol is painfully inadequate).
But as so often with Fuller, the sheer energy of the direction and his seething anger at ingrained racism carries the film over its flaws.
Paramount were so dismayed by White Dog they withheld it from US distribution for years.
