"Good luck with tigers, Mr Black – inside and out."
14 August 2010 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There's a better film lurking in the material than ever makes it to the screen in Harry Black and the Tiger, another 50s CinemaScope shot-on-location effort which sees Stewart Granger's tin-legged hunter tracking a man-eating tiger and finding his path crossing with Anthony Steel's coward and his wife – and Granger's unconsummated love – Barbara Rush, yet it's so restrained and there's so little spark between the leads that it never catches fire the way it should. Indeed, only I.S. Johar's guide makes much of an impression. There are some interesting ideas, not least the way Granger's progress is linked to the tiger, visually, physically and emotionally, but unfortunately the execution is often a bit dreary without ever quite tilting over into total boredom. Watchable, but it rarely repays the effort.
