Way back in 1981 actress Tippi Hedren (The Birds) and her husband, agent/producer Noel Marshall, got the crazy idea to write and direct an animal-based disaster movie starring Hedren, her daughter Melanie Griffith and the family's huge collection of African lions. (Yup, Hedren ran a refuge for wild animals in Southern California). No animals were harmed in the making of the film, but 70 members of the cast and crew were. The film was an epic disaster, but the fine folks at Drafthouse Films have dredged up prints of the mind-boggling film and are sending it back to theaters for awestruck audiences to witness. 94 minutes Unrated.
