Action of the Tiger is a 1957 British-American CinemaScope action film distributed by MGM, directed by Terence Young, and starring Van Johnson and Martine Carol.
The plot is about the rescue of a political prisoner held in Albania. Carson, played by Van Johnson, is an American contraband runner approached by Tracy, a French woman who wants him to help rescue her brother. Action of the Tiger is also of interest for Sean Connery fans, as the Scots actor would reunite with director Terence Young for the film Dr. No five years later.
The title comes from William Shakespeare's Henry V.
According to MGM records, the film earned $465,000 in the US and Canada and $1,175,000 elsewhere, resulting in a net profit of $25,000.
