It stinks. One of Holden's few bombs. Done,I think, because of Holden's love of Africa and he owned the land it was filmed on. Capucine is completely midcast.Trevor Howard has no teeth in this film (literally!).!

No Wonder Holden Fell for Africa
Good movie.Great acting
Put this on sale and I'll buy it!!
The film is unique on most levels; it ushers in the following decades of field animal behavioral research and documentaries, and deals with the psychological issues of parental neglect and support. Its cast is all-star, including Trevor Howard, William Holden, the brilliantly natural child actress Pamela Franklin, and of course, The Lion. There is no candy-coating of the setting in Africa and what happens when a wild child has total command of a large cat.The film is shot on location, with gorgeous natural scenery and iconic African wildlife populating the story.This film is a true classic, though evidently largely unknown. But there are many of us out here who would love to add this excellent adventure tale to our collection.
Should be on DVD
