In a War You've Got a Chance, but with a Woman . . .

In 1876 the United States was 100 years old. In March Alexander Graham Bell got a patent for an invention he called a telephone. In May Wyatt Earp got a job as a deputy Marshal in Dodge City, Kansas. In June Chief Sitting Bull led 5,000 Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapho Indians into battle against 300 men of the 7th Cavalry Regiment, led by Lieutenant Colonel George Custer.

In August Thomas Edison got a patent for an printing machine that he named mimeograph. In November while voting for a new president was taking place, grave robbers tried to open Abraham Lincoln’s tomb, but were caught. This same year the first bottle of Heinz ketchup was sold, and the first bottle of Budweiser beer was sold.

In the spring of that year Flora Wellman was living in San Francisco with an astrologer named William Chaney. She found herself pregnant, but Chaney was sterile, and demanded that she have an abortion. She tried unsuccessfully to kill herself, and when her baby was born, she gave him to a former slave named Virginia Prentiss, played by Louise Beavers in this movie.

When the recovered mother later married a disabled Civil War veteran named John London, Virginia Prentiss and young Jack moved in with them and became part of the family. As an adult, Jack London decided that earning money with his mind would be healthier than working in a factory, so he learned to write his experiences as he saw them.

On the way to becoming a famous and wealthy author, Jack London wandered the earth in search of a story to tell, chasing gold in the Yukon, and war in South Africa and around the world, until his death in 1916 at the age of 40. This stylized story of his adult life was written by his second wife, Charmian Kittredge, in this movie played by Susan Hayward.
