The Tiger Makes Out Filmed in my Home
24 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back in 1967, a film producer visited my family and asked if they could use our home and our neighbor's home for a new film starring Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson. After negotiations, parts of the film were filmed in our home and our neighbor's home.

Since I was in about 6th grade at the time, and since it was the biggest thing to hit our neighborhood, I was allowed to stay home the day of filming.

Being curious, I approached the coach bus parked in front of my home. I stepped inside and sat next to a very nice (handsome) gentleman. We got to talking, as he was very friendly. He explained that he had a small part, not being filmed at my house, and we sat and chatted for awhile. He told me his name, Dustin Hoffman. After ten or fifteen minutes I left the bus.

Just a few years later when watching a movie with Dustin Hoffman, my dad said... isn't that the guy from The Tiger Makes Out? It sure was... and I remembered my conversation on the bus with him. Over the years, I've followed his career.

Last night I was telling a friend about this movie. We later sat down to watch "The Holiday".... I was saying, wow... ELI WALLACH...we were just talking about him. Later in the movie, when there was a short glimpse of Dustin Hoffman, did I really get the chills... Am very curious as to why Dustin made a quick appearance in another of Eli's movies.

Just wish I could get the movie on DVD... searched the internet, and it's not to be found. Too bad... what wonderful memories that movie would bring back!!
