Wonderful Movie
21 July 2006 | by susanneharpSee all my reviews

They filmed Johnny Tiger in Longwood Florida when I was about 13, or 14. They shot some scenes in the Longwood Hotel, that was behind my house, and also DownTown and behind the Railroad tracks at the Train Depot.. My family became friends with some of the actors, and they asked if I would consider playing a young Indian Girl who was suppose to be drowning and Robert Taylor was going to rescue me! Was I ever excited. They dug a trench behind the Depot and filled it with water. Anyway, it was fun! I don't know if they cut the scene or not, as I never saw the movie, but that was the thrill of my young life!Plus, we got to meet all the actors!
