Reviews
Mine: Great movie. It was years after I saw this the first time that I realized that it was not a documenary. A must see for all kids.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Exceptional adaptation of the late Joy Adamson's book about Elsa the lioness, who was raised as a pet by two Kenya game wardens. Sincere, engrossing film, a must for family viewing. Oscars for Best Original Score (John Barry) and Title Song (Barry and Don Black). Screenplay by Gerald L. C. Copley (Lester Cole). Followed by a sequel (LIVING FREE) and a brief TV series. Remade for TV in 1996. Panavision.
