Beware of the one-act play with apparent screen possibilities. The Tiger Makes Out was adapted by Murray Schisgal from his 1963 two-character comedy-drama The Tiger into a distended, uneven pic.

Filmed in New York, the George Justin production stars Eli Wallach and Ann Jackson, encoring their legit roles. Good performances, production and yeoman directorial effort by Arthur Hiller buoy up interest.

The play concerned the (offstage) kidnapping of Jackson, a suburban housefrau, by frustrated mailman Wallach, after which some genuinely tender dialog brings together the two spirits.

The kidnapping itself is not detailed; on film, however, it is, and, while necessary, the act itself is not a laugh-getter.
