TIGER BAY 1959
U.K. film. German teen-idol Horst Bucholz plays a young sailor returning to his girlfriend after time at sea only to discover she's taken up with another man. During their encounter she displays a gun and harshly berates and belittles him. In a fit of anger he grabs the gun and shoots her dead.

While this was happening a low-class, little scruffy neighborhood girl (Hayley Mills) was peeping through the mail slot and witnessed the murder. The sweet-faced, dirty, little ragamuffin is actually a troublemaking, conniving, compulsive liar.

She finds the hidden gun, takes it, and in a twist begins to bond with the sailor/murderer while she convincingly lies to the authorities to protect him. Now friends, the sailor agrees to take the scruff to sea as he flees the country. But it doesn't go as planned.

Horst Bucholz was a huge teen star in Germany and had previously been in the film Teenage Wolfpack where he was billed as the next James Dean. Tiger Bay was Haley Mills' first film. The Police Superintendent is played by John Mills, Haley's father. Tiger Bay is a great little suspense film that never fails to deliver a huge emotional impact, even on repeat viewings.

Tiger Bay was filmed mostly on location in the Tiger Bay district of Cardiff and at Avonmouth Docks in Bristol and features real footage of the street culture of children and blacks along with many dockside shots and scenes filmed in real pubs. John Mills, Horst Buchholz, Hayley Mills, Yvonne Mitchell, Megs Jenkins, Anthony Dawson, George Selway, George Pastell. Tiger Bay!
