Subject: Disney's "A Tiger Walks": Traumatic, or basically enjoyable, or BOTH?

Written By: The Valley Goth on 03/21/14 at 1:15 am

Like, Hi, Fer Shurr,

NOTE: SPOILERS for Disney's "A Tiger Walks", AND for "The Watcher in the Woods"!

I recently ordered Disney's 1964, live-action movie, "A Tiger Walks"; I've been curious about this movie for awhile, but I've been ESPECIALLY curious about it, because people have said that Brian Keith's character is ESPECIALLY nasty towards his daughter.  I'm really, really curious to know just how controversial "A Tiger Walks" REALLY was/ is...I mean, does Brian Keith just YELL at Pamela Franklin, or does he grab her arms and shake her WHILE he's yelling at her?  Does he throw her/ sit her down on a sofa roughly?  I mean, is his character depicted as being physically threatening, or just slightly hot-tempered?

I mean, during 1980, Disney told Carroll Baker that she'd better just shake Lynn-Holly Johnson during "The Watcher in the Woods", instead of slapping her, because they didn't want the audiences to freak the heck out.  "A Tiger Walks" was released during 1964, so I don't know what the audiences'/ T.V. audiences' reactions would have been in response to surprising violence back then...

I'm also curious to know how bad the early death of the mean tiger handler is.  I truly hope that by the end of the attack scene/ death scene (?), I am still able to feel a great deal of sympathy for the tiger, 'cause he looks pretty cool, anyway.

I think that the character of Julie will be likable, though, fer SHURR!
