The Lion


Drama96 Mins1962

Living an idyllic existence on a Kenyan wildlife preserve, Tina (Pamela Franklin) is remarkably at home with the resident animals. In fact, she is so comfortable with the various creatures that her best friend is an adult lion. While Tina isn't too worried by this relationship, her mother, Christine (Capucine), becomes extremely concerned, and requests that her ex-husband -- Tina's father, Robert (William Holden) -- come for a visit to help straighten the girl out.
