AFI should have made it #1
23 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Sometimes you have to wonder why some films are snubbed at the Oscars, and Tiger by the Tail is one of those films.

Afterall, Charo is in it. Any film about a guy being framed for murder is obviously top notch. Why is there no Maltin review?
