Tiger Warsaw is a 1988 American drama film directed by Amin Q. Chaudhri, written by Roy London, and starring Patrick Swayze. It was produced by Continental Film Group.


Chuck "Tiger" Warsaw (Swayze) brought sorrow to his family fifteen years earlier when he shot his father Michael (Lee Richardson) and made him a semi-invalid. After fifteen years of self-destruction, Tiger returns home to the steel production community of Sharon to seek forgiveness.



The outside of the "Buhl Mansion" in the film was actually the Buhl Casino founded in the early 1910s by Frank H. Buhl on his 300-acre farm that he turned into a park and donated it to the people of the Shenango Valley for families to come and enjoy.


The film was advertised with the tagline "Years ago he shattered his life. Now he's back to pick up the pieces."


The film only grossed $422,667 in the United States upon its spring 1988 release.
