  • tiger and man both leap, man knifes tiger

    I can remember seeing a trailer for a movie, almost certainly in the 1970s, almost certainly latter half of 70s, where a tiger/lion leaps in the air, presumably to kill the man, but the man also leaps in the air, with a knife, and cuts open the tiger/lion's stomach. I believe the man then lands safely while the tiger/lion lands dead. Any idea what the name of the movie is? Thanks!

    Almost any Tarzan film (or those films derived from the Tarzan stories).
    Do you remember if the man was wearing a loincloth or was he wearing more "normal" clothes?

      Thanks for the pointer Steve. I think it was a loincloth.

        There is a Stewart Granger film wherby SG is a veteran game poacher who has an extended run-in with a Bengal tiger in India. The tiger comes off worst but this is 1958 though.

        Variously titled 'Meet Harry Black' or 'Harry Black and the Tiger'

          Well I have finished watching the 1981 version of Tarzan - [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarzan,_the_Ape_Man_(1981_film[/url]) - and the scene is not in there. That was the closest one I could find to the late 1970s. I'll see what else I can find.

            This link is the relevant imdb page when having searched for 'tiger' as part of the narrative and then numerically indexed the release date to (in this case) approximately 1979. You may have to go back or forward a page or two to pick up the whole period we have in question.
