Movie Reviews

Tarzan of the burning sands
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 08/25/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Born in 1915, Jon Hall was a nephew to the co-author of "Mutiny on the Bounty." His father was Swiss and his mother a Tahitian princess. Hall's movie career began in 1935; "The Lion Man" was his 4th film appearance and first lead role. Best remembered for co-starring with Dorothy Lamour and Mary Astor in John Ford's "The Hurricane" (1937), Hall took his own life in 1979 after a lengthy battle with bladder cancer.

SYNOPSIS for "The Lion Man"--
While traveling in a caravan with his young son, a British financier on a secret mission is murdered by an Arab sheik. The boy survives the massacre and is put in the care of a holy man who also raises lions. Eventually becoming a warrior known as "El Lion," the young Britisher takes an oath to protect desert travelers from marauding bandits. Based on an Edgar Rice Burroughs story.

Joh Hall also stars in ALI BABA AND THE 40 THIEVES (1944).
