Paper Tiger ★★ 1974

Niven plays an imaginative English tutor who fabricates fantastic yarns fictionalizing his past in order to impress his student, the son of the Japanese ambassador to a Southeast Asian country. Poorly executed karate, misdirection, and a simplistic story line work against it. 104m/C VHS . GB David Niven, Toshiro Mifune, Eiko Ando, Hardy Kruger; D: Ken Annakin; W: Jack Davies.
