Dar's black tiger is actually a regular striped tiger dyed black. The dye would wash off around the mouth whenever the tiger took a drink, so throughout the film the stripes are often visible around the mouth. See more »
(at around 1h) After saving the tiger, Dar and Seth and the little boy decide to travel together you can see a car behind the trees passing by. See more »
For one of the slew of quickly produced movies of the 80's this one is pretty good. You've got Marc Singer when he was young and fit (not leathery and ancient like in the later movies of this series) and Tanya Roberts who is hot in this film. You've got swordfights, sorcery, the whole works. That said, I did find the ferrets a little annoying, but that's just me.
On the whole the movie works well and there are some touches, like the flying humanoids that envelop and dissolve their prey, that just make the film.
SUMMARY: Hero who can talk to animals sets out to overthrow an evil warlord.
