Never mind the title Bengal Tiger; Warner Bros. wasn't about to make a full-fledged jungle epic on a B-picture budget, so most of the action takes place in a stateside circus. At base, the film is Warners' 1936 edition of its 1932 hit Tiger Shark, resurrecting the "old guy and young guy battling over the same girl" bit. Animal trainer Barton MacLaine and his younger assistant Warren Hull duke it out over beautiful June Travis. Things come to a pretty pass when the titular tiger escapes during a circus fire. MacLaine is ingested while trying to corral the beast, and Hull ends up with the girl.
