Paper Tiger is a 1975 British film starring David Niven and child actor Kazuhito Ando.

Plot summary[edit]

Mr Bradbury (David Niven), an apparently well-educated, ex-military Englishman is hired as tutor to Koichi Kagoyama (played by Kazuhito Ando), the son of a Japanese ambassador. Bradbury becomes a trusted friend, who boasts about himself during his British Army service being a hero telling him "war stories", but some painful truths are revealed after he and the boy are kidnapped by political terrorists. It comes to the point when Mr Bradbury has to live up to the "action man" he makes himself out to be.


Production notes[edit]

The movie claimed to have been based in the fictional city of Kulagong but in reality it was shot in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
