Actor Hobart Bosworth admired Jack London's writing and formed a company to produce movies based on London's stories and novels.
I first read Martin Eden one summer while I was in high school. London's description of working conditions during the Gilded Age made a large impression on me. Martin Eden shares many of Jack London's traits, as a self-taught man who pulled himself from the bottom to the top. I have never seen any of the film or television adaptions.
