Overview

Julie (Kristy McNichol) is a young actress living in the Hollywood Hills. Out driving one night, she accidentally runs over a German shepherd. After taking him to the vet, she decides to adopt him as her own. While he initially presents as a loyal, protective hound, Julie eventually comes to the horrifying discovery that he is a so-called ‘white dog’, trained to attack and kill Black people. Instead of putting him down, she tries to cure his racist ways with the help of animal trainer Keys (Paul Winfield). But is his condition uncurable?

Why You Should See This Film

Widely misunderstood upon release, White Dog has since been critically reevaluated as one of best and most powerful films by the late, great Samuel Fuller (known for pulp classics such as Shock Corridor and The Naked Kiss). A searing treatise on racism in America adapted from the novel by Romain Gary, the film remains as gripping, thought-provoking and painfully relevant today.
