Trivia Melanie Griffith was mauled by a lion during filming, and required plastic surgery. Griffith reportedly received 50 stitches to her face. It was feared she would lose an eye, but she recovered and was not disfigured. On another occasion, a lion grabbed her hair and wouldn't let go. That shot made it into the film. See more »
