Synopsis by C. Dwayne Smith
Unlike the Disney movie of the same name, this documentary from National Geographic is best viewed from a distance. While the leopard in this story is certainly beautiful in grace, it is not animated and is lethal in application. Additional eye candy comes in the background setting: the Mala Mala Game Preserve in South Africa's Kruger National Park. Narrated by gravel-voiced Academy award-winning actor James Coburn, this 60-minute journey through the grasslands of the Dark Continent tells the oldest tale of predator and prey. The players in this version are the spotted leopard versus the walking pork-chop, aka the Warthog.
