Movie Info

At a national park in Kenya, English game warden George Adamson (Bill Travers) and his wife, Joy (Virginia McKenna), care for three orphaned lion cubs. After the two larger lions are shipped off to a zoo in the Netherlands, the smallest of the three, Elsa, stays with the couple. When Elsa is blamed for causing an elephant stampede in the nearby village, head warden John Kendall (Geoffrey Keen) demands the young lion either be trained to survive in the wilds of the Serengeti or be sent to a zoo.

    I'm on an animal jag now...saw this one somewhere along the line and it holds up well as a late nite DVD. Explores nicely our relationship with wild animals--what do we owe them in return for what to bring to our lives. Anyone who has ever lived with an animal can relate.

    The second half was much better than the first that laid most of the groundwork. Some parts were dreary and drawn out too long, but the movie was very moving and informative.

    What can you say. A classic.
