Movie SummaryA dedicated teacher befriends a promising half-breed Seminole in florida and then becomes involved in the Seminole's struggle for individual education vs. the dire leadership needs of the tribe. VIEWER COMMENT: "My sister and I saw this movie when we were in our teens. We were simply in awe of Chad Everett and watched it over and over. We have looked high and low trying to find a copy of it on tape or dvd and it is simply not for sale any more. We found it to be funny, serious and thought provoking all at the same time. We would love to find a copy for our home viewing." VIEWER COMMENT: "Johnny Tiger is a surprisingly good film. This is a new Robert Taylor, a serious actor, older and wiser. His character is a teacher on an Indian reservation who finds that the Chiefs grandson has a intelligence that had not been tapped yet. He pursues Chad Everett to be the first of his race to become highly educated, and possibly bring that education back to the children. There are various character insights where the old chief butts heads with Taylor, telling him that Johnny's place is with his people. Taylor won't give up, and alienates his own daughter because of his obsession with this boy. Geraldine Brooks plays the doctor, who wants to bring out the real man in Taylor and not just the teacher. He is all tied up emotionally, and she tells him so, but he just doesn't get it. Finally, after his daughter leaves and marries Johnny, and his young son is lost in a fire, only to be rescued by the old chief, does he begin to open up to his own feelings. This is basically a character study movie and Taylor does a great job as the teacher. This is the film he thought would bring change to his career, allowing him to play more serious roles, but the studio didn't promote this film. It is a shame because it is one of Taylors best." VIEWER COMMENT : "Johnny Tiger was a film that Robert Taylor hoped would help him transition to older more mature roles. He's a man of academia who's taken a position on a Seminole Indian reservation in Florida. While there, he encounters the charming and reckless title character played by Chad Everett. Everett is the grandson of the old chief Sam Tiger played by Ford Rainey. The grandson and grandfather are estranged as Everett has been too long living in the white man's world and won't assume his rightful place in the tribal councils. In a plot gambit obviously taken from The Corn Is Green, Taylor recognizes Everett as a most intelligent young man. Not quite Will Hunting type smart, nevertheless Everett has the potential for bigger and better things. Taylor feels it's those backward Indian ways holding him back. Education and literacy are the answer and he develops a messianic fervor on the subject. Taylor would be described today as a secular humanist, but he does learn the wisdom of Hamlet's words to Horatio about there being more things on heaven and earth than are dreamed of in your philosophy. If Johnny Tiger was made today, it would be a natural project for Lou Diamond Phillips with his partially Cherokee heritage no one would object to the casting. You could never get away with casting Ford Rainey and Marc Lawrence who plays the Seminole medicine man in Indian roles today. Still they are not bad in them and those players, Everett included, do not insult or demean the people they portray. Probably this film should have made its debut on television. I remember it being released back in the day as the second half of a double bill with a Munster film. Not exactly an opportunity to showcase the players, including most importantly Robert Taylor. Geraldine Brooks plays the government doctor on the reservation and she's a most fetching female who tries very hard to humanize Taylor and derail him from his mission which is essentially to destroy what little is left of the Seminole culture. Brenda Scott is Taylor's daughter who gets involved with Everett, further complicating things. Johnny Tiger is not a bad film, it was never really given a chance to find its audience back in the day. Though I do wonder about where Seminole Indians would have heard of tigers from the real India." VIEWER COMMENT : "I was barely out of my teens when I visited the set to see my father, Glenn Kirkpatrick, who was camera assistant, and his friend, Charlie O'Rork (camera operator). They had shot one of producer John Hugh's earlier films, "Yellowneck". I was looking for the working title, "The Cry of the Laughing Owls", then remembered it was released as "Johnny Tiger". I remember being impressed with the power of the very presence of Robert Taylor. I saw a scene where Gereldine Brooks finished a scene with Taylor in bed (both were fully clothed) and was struck by the intimacy of that simple scene. I though that Tay Garnet started directing the film and was replaced by Paul Wendkos, but that was a long time ago. I distinctly remember Wendkos getting very upset by the frequent clouds that passed in front of the sun, which would change the lighting in the midst of filming. He began exclaiming "FLORIDA!" as if it were spelled with four letters. I remember the director ordered the set crew to "age" the beautiful little schoolhouse exterior to look broken down. He wanted the actors to develop and internalize the changes that take place in Johnny Tiger and the community. Probably the most memorable moments off screen were those created by Chad Everett, who, in full Indian make up and attire ate his lunch off a buck knife. Little boys, who were dressed as little Seminole Indians, sat awe-struck at his feet."
