SYNOPSIS One of the most controversial American films of the 1980s, Samuel Fuller's White Dog was originally withheld from release in the USA and has been rarely seen since. This head-on examination of racism remains a riveting and startlingly powerful film experience, with superb performances and a brilliant score by the great Ennio Morricone.
When a young actress (Kristy McNichol) adopts a stray white Alsatian she hit with her car, she soon discovers that the dog has been conditioned to attack any black person on sight. Its only chance is Keys (Paul Winfield), an animal trainer focused on breaking the dog's behaviour and finding a way to eradicate its vicious instincts.
An acclaimed and daring late-career highlight for its director, White Dog amply demonstrates Fuller's clear-eyed intelligence, impassioned humanity and filmmaking dynamism. Unavailable in the UK for decades, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present its premiere in a new Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition.
- Gorgeous 1080p transfer on the Blu-ray, and progressive encode on the DVD
- Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
- 48-PAGE BOOKLET featuring an essay on the film by Jonathan Rosenbaum, the words of Samuel Fuller, his 'interview' with the dog, and rare archival imagery.
There is certainly no finer film on its subject --Time Out Film Guide

Kristy McNicol has a natural, easy-going screen presence and delivers a solid performance as an actress whose adopted stray turns out to attack people. She is appalled when her loving, good-natured German Shepherd disappears and comes back stained with blood. When she takes him to a trainer to be rehabilitated, she learns that he doesn't attack just anyone, only black people. Since pupphyhood, the dog was habitually beaten and taught to associate black people with being attacked, until he attacks any black person on sight, before they get him. This is racism stripped to its barest; fear, taught to us, handed down by those we learn from. But can a simple creature like this dog be taught to overcome his fear? That's the task that the trainer, played by Paul Winfield, is set with. If he can cure this dog of his racism, then why can't people?
White Dog was controversial on its release, in fact some people insisted on branding it as a racist movie. There is nothing racist about it, except that it exposes the tumour in our society that is racism and what it essentially is. Things like this really have happened, racists trained their dogs to perform these terrible acts. White Dog is clever because the subject of racism isn't beaten over the viewer's head. The dog is the perfect demonstration of this.Read more ›
Masters of Cinema have delivered yet another great package. Booklet is also great.
The acting is very good except for the lead actress (Kristy McNichol). She is totally miscast. However, this is one of those rare ocassions where the movie and story line overshadows the acting. The video on the DVD is good as is the audio. The Bluray video and audio is a nice upgrade. Included is an informative booklet which sheds light on the movie, director, etc.This is Region B locked.
I can't recommend this movie enough! Enjoy!

that has been abused and brainwashed to hate black people. The fact that curing this dog of racism would be the
biggest weapon against those that train these dogs really gets you thinking.I really don't know how anyone can brand
this film as racist as the films sole purpose is to remove that hate from the dog.
