Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title Lion Man is double-pronged. Steve Arkin plays the son of King Solomon, the "lion" of his people. Abandoned in the jungle as an infant, Arkin is raised by wild beasts. Using the ferocity and survival skills of his lion companions, he returns as an adult to regain father's throne. The film's excellent outdoor photography is marred by the clumsy acting of the leading character.
