The Lion At World's End George Adamson, Anthony Bourke, John Rendall. Shot exactly as it happened. This movie is a companion to the book 'A Lion Called Christian' by Bourke and Rendall who are also listed as "stars" of the film. The film is a documentary produced to finance the project of sending Christian from London to the wilds of east Africa. With the exception of the dramatized opening scene of Christian being introduced to Bill Travers, it was filmed as it happened and its simple, honest style is very effective. George Adamson appears prominently in the latter portion of the movie. Adamson is the real person Travers portrayed in the movie Born Free, and his interaction with many lions during the course of the project is simply amazing. Christian, the lion, is himself amazing and the reason this film is more than just another documentary. Also released as "Christian" and "The Lion That Thought He Was People". 1977 Color 89 minutes
