Hollywood Safari ★★½ 1996 (PG)

Jane (Boone) and Troy (Leisure) Johnson train animals for the movies. But Kensho the mountain lion escapes into the woods after a transport accident and is eventually captured by the police who think it's the wild cat that recently attacked a local teen. The Johnsons try to prevent the sheriff's deputy (Savage) from having Kensho killed before they can prove their claims, but their best defense would be to find the renegade cougar. It's a pleasant enough time-waster, with Muddy, the Johnson's dog, providing some fine heroics. 89m/C VHS, DVD . John Savage, Ted Jan Roberts, David Leisure, Debbie Boone, Ken Tigar, Don “The Dragon” Wilson; D: Henri Charr; W: Robert Newcastle; C: Guido Verweyen. VIDEO
