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

Plot summary

Mr Bradbury (David Niven), an apparently well-educated, ex-military Englishman is hired as tutor to the son of a Japanese ambassador, Koichi Kagoyama (played by Ando). 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

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