The movie that almost ended up killing Melanie Griffith. Some of you might have seen this movie when it came out 1981, for me it was a first. It's not a documentary but rather a movie with a plot although it plays out very weird and realistic because the reactions are real, because it involves 150 untrained Lions, Tigers, Leopards, Jaguars, Elephants and well.....you name it. Also a whole cast and crew of people unqualified to work with these animals, they had two people only who were trained to work with tigers. It's absolutely mental that anyone would back up and fund a movie like this and really surprising that no one died. One cinematographer was scalped by a lion and needed 200 stitches!!! Melanie's face after the lion attack. Btw Box Office Budget: $17,000,000 (estimated) Gross: $2,000,000 (USA) Wtf?!? 17 mil in 1981?? What is that worth today?
