The Eye of the Tiger (novel)
First Heinemann edition
The Eye of the Tiger is a 1975 novel by Wilbur Smith set among the islands of the Indian Ocean.
Film rights were bought by producer Michael Klinger who had made two films based on Smith novels. Although Smith did a screenplay, no movie has resulted as of 2016. Klinger almost got the film financed in 1986 as part of an eight-picture deal but this film apart when the proposed star, Michael Caine, was unavailable.
