The Sea Wolf, a novel written by Jack London in 1904, was adapted into a silent film in 1913. Originally declined as a single-reel version by Sidney Ayres, Hobart Bosworth created Bosworth, Inc. to make films adapting Jack London’s stories. A series of legal battles ensued following this decision due to other production companies already creating their own adaptations. London was heavily involved in the production of Bosworth’s films, especially The Sea Wolf, in which he chose actors for stunt roles and played a small part. The master negatives of the film were lost to the Lubin Manufacturing Company vault fire of 1914. The film has been “lost” for decades, meaning that there is no present day record of it in any studio archive, public archive, private collection, or in the Library of Congress.(AFI)
