Never Cry Wolf is a sweeping saga of the myth and magic of wild wolves and man's true place among these infamous creatures of nature. Charles Martin Smith stars as Tyler, a young government biologist who is assigned to travel the isolated Arctic wilderness of Northern Canada to study the area's savage population of wolves. His orders are to gather proof of the wolves' ongoing destruction of caribou herds. Contact with his quarry comes quickly, and he discovers not a den of marauding killers, but a courageous family of skillful providers and devoted protectors of their young. As Tyler learns more and more about the wolf world, he comes to fear, along with them, the onslaught of hunters (Brian Dennehy) out to kill the wolves for their pelts and exploit the wilderness. He must now make a choice--should he return to the life he once knew or should he take a stand, defending this breathtaking new world? Directed by Carroll Ballard (The Black Stallion). LBX 1.85:1.
