There is a movie from the 1940 era titled: "The Sea Wolf" starring Ida Lupino, Edward G. Robinson, and a host of other character actors. There was a Western Movie made with the exact Story Line, but instead of the location being at sea, it had its setting in the American Western desert. What is the name of that movie, Please?

Edward G. Robinson starred in another movie, along with Susan Hayward, Richard Conte and Luther Adler, etc, the noirish HOUSE OF STRANGERS (1949), which Fox later remade as a western, BROKEN LANCE (1954), with Spencer Tracy, Richard Widmark, Jean Peters, Robert Wagner and Katy Jurado, among others. I believe it was remade yet again THE BIG SHOW (1961), with a circus setting, with Esther Williams, Clift Robertson, Robert Vaughn, etc.

Re: *The Sea Wolf*

 

"Jack London's novel THE SEA WOLF has inspired at least nine film versions with the first one, produced in 1913, remaining the most faithful to the book. Other renditions include the 1920 version with Noah Beery in the Wolf Larsen role, a 1926 version starring Ralph Ince, a 1930 remake featuring Milton Sills, a version entitled *Barricade* (1950) with Raymond Massey, Wolf Larsen (1958), a pet project of actor Sterling Hayden which starred Barry Sullivan, *Larsen: Wolf of the Seven Seas* (1975), an Italian production with Chuck Connors in the title role, and a made-for-TV version in 1993 starring Charles Bronson. But by general consensus, the 1941 production of *The Sea Wolf*, directed by Michael Curtiz, is considered the most effective adaptation due to Edward G. Robinson's definitive portrayal and Robert Rossen's screenplay which accents the psychological and allegorical aspects of the story."
