The next time you go on a camping trip, make sure there aren't any wild tigers roaming around. This precaution is not taken by city-bred vacationers Nick and Gloria Baron (Ben Gazzara and Sheree North) and their young friends, Shep (Kip Niven) and Polly (Laurette Spang). Once they've encamped in the wilds, the four protagonists find themselves targeted as human kitty treats by lunatic tiger trainer Brenner (Richard Basehart), who, one suspects, has read Richard Connell's The Most Dangerous Game once too often. Former Ben Casey star Vince Edwards chose this little bit of fur-flying as his TV-movie directorial debut. All too typical of ABC's "Movie of the Week" anthology, Maneater was originally broadcast on December 8, 1973.
