About White Dog

A milestone—the first TFH trailer for a movie that never had a trailer! Sam Fuller’s final Hollywood picture, whose non-release at the hands of gutless studio execs drove him to Europe for the rest of his career, didn’t merit a finished trailer or even a poster. This is the never-seen rough cut for the unfinished trailer, a fuzzy black-and-white dupe with narration. Producer Jon Davison explains the inexplicable.

About Jon Davison

NYU graduate and longtime film buff Jon Davison parlayed his term as director of advertising and publicity for Roger Corman’s New World Pictures into a producing career which includes two of Paul Verhoeven’s best, Robocop and Starship Troopers.  Other Davison productions are Airplane!, The Sixth Day, Piranha and Sam Fuller’s controversial White Dog. At this moment he’s probably running a 16mm print in his living room.
