Audience Reviews for Tiger Bay


Hayley Mills stars in this film along with Actor Father John Mills in a story of Murder, loyalty and unconventional friendship

The best Hayley Mills film, no comparison. She always was better at playing tomboys. Horst Buchholz (Magnificent Seven) is tragic, charming and utterly gorgeous all at the same time. For those who fell for the Hollywood bad boy rebels such as James Dean, Marlon Brando and Steve McQueen should watch this film. I love how John Mills (Hayley's dad) seems to be in awe of his daughter in some scenes. This is an utterly utterly utterly brilliant film.
