Trivia

The crew on this movie nicknamed its star Tippi Hedren as the Pearl White of the 1980s. White was the star of the silent adventure movie The Perils of Pauline (1914), a movie that Hedren alluded to whilst publicizing this picture: "Making Roar (1981) was just like The Perils of Pauline (1914), a cliff-hanger every day. Now the cliff-hangers are not the physical kind, but the demanding problems of promotion, distribution and marketing associated with getting a major motion picture into the theaters and into public consciousness."

Amazing work with wild animals
23 November 2001 | by (Chicago, Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie dubbed in German in 1984 and thought it was incredible how lions were used in the movie. The plot, though simple, is interesting which makes the movie enjoyable for a wide audience. The writers did a good job in keeping the humor light. Kudos go to the lead characters in the movie, supposedly some of whom got injured in the filming.
