Full movie description "The Lion Man":Seeking to secure mining rights for tungsten in the North African desert, Sir Ronald Chatham is killed by a treacherous sheik, but his young son is rescued from the same fate by Sherrifa, an enigmatic Euorpean woman, who sacrifices her own life to save his. She leaves the youngster in the desert to be raised as a native by a spiritual mystic . He grows up under the old man's influence alongside lions, earning the nickname of "The Lion Man" and gaining a reputation for integrity among the locals. After achieving manhood he meets the beautiful Eulilah and becomes a rival for her love with the very same sheik who murdered his father.
Reviews of the The Lion ManIn addition to his "Tarzan" series, the prolific Edgar Rice Burroughs did write many other books, although, aside from the popular "At the Earth's Core", few of these have been filmed. One exception is the novel entitled "The Lad and the Lion", brought to the screen as "The Lion Man" (1936), an over-talkative, static, old-hat, slow-moving and rather dull movie, despite being filmed on real desert locations. Actually "movie" is the wrong word. The narrative doesn't move but proceeds at a snail's pace in an abrupt series of jerks. For instance, at least five characters are given elaborate opening scenes and then just disappear. Even more frustrating for the keen movie fan, are the characters who make an impression of sorts (like the lass who plies Hall with drugged wine) but are enacted by players who are not credited! The credited thespians generally come off worse than the unknowns. One exception is Australian actress Finis Barton who gives a good account of the kidnapped harem girl who rescues young Master Fairy. Admittedly, most of the cast are saddled with atrocious King James dialogue which has to be heard to be believed! But the way to play this rubbish is tongue-in-cheek, a stratagem which does not seem to have occurred to a single one of the film's roster of no-talent players. Maybe director J.P. McCarthy scotched that idea. Anyway, it's sad to see the lovely Kathleen Burke forced to trade lines with the likes of Richard Carlyle (her dad) and Jon Hall (her suitor). Admittedly, Mr Hall delivers his lines with marginally more conviction than Mr Carlyle, but that is no recommendation.
