ROAR
1981, AGFA, 102 min, Dir: Noel Marshall

“No animals were harmed in the making of this film. 70 cast and crew members were.” Anyone who thinks life with the lions is all BORN FREE bliss should watch this notorious adventure-horror film, shot over the course of a decade. Star of THE BIRDS and an animal-rights activist, Tippi Hedren plays a woman who brings her three children (including real-life daughter Melanie Griffith) to visit her husband’s California wildlife ranch - only to be attacked by its four-legged inhabitants.

THE BIRDS
