Christian, the lion who lived in my London living room: The Movie, Parts 1 and 2
I blogged about Christian the Lion a while back. But I can't believe that I actually found the movie! Christian the Lion was made into a movie staring Ace and John, Christian and Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna. The story follows the truth closely, and even includes lots of footage of Christian playing with Ace and John. You can see they really loved each other.
So the story goes that Bill and Virginia, after having starred in the Movie Born Free (a movie about George Adamson - the Man who lived with Lions) were shopping for a desk. They wondered into the World's End Antique store and were shocked to find a lion there. They had first hand knowledge of the lion sanctuary run by George Adamson and were quick to help Ace and John relocate Christian to the wild. The movie clips below explain the story and show how this wild animal was raised to be a loving and gentle giant.
John and Ace were so dedicated to Christian, that they quit their jobs and went to live with Christian at Bill and Virginia's cottage while the arrangements were made to take him to Africa. What an amazing story. Enjoy the first two parts of the movie, I'll post the rest in the coming days! Read the article, Christian the Lion who lived in my London living room for more information.
