It wasn't the least bit suspenseful. You could tell from the beginning what the ending would be. The only surprise was the death of the father.

The Big Cat, a special movie to me.
November 20, 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
4 people found this helpful.
I bought this movie because it holds a special place in my heart. Preston Foster and Forrest Tucker turned in their usual wonderful performances. I especially liked their fight scene. The Big Cat was causing real problems with the area ranchers and had avoided being put out of commission. It has been a while since I viewed this movie as I purchased it while Mom was still living. So I watched it with her probably in 2004. Her and I saw it when it first came out in 1947 so it is special as we viewed it at a theater when we went to visit friends several miles from our home. To see the huge scratch on the stock of the rifle Preston Foster was carrying when the cat attacked him was chilling. Mix in romance of the sweet and innocent variety and a good old fashion setting out west and you have a great movie.

Good Film, Poor Quality DVD
July 11, 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
This review is for the DVD from NoseSilo Video pictured above. The case says this DVD is "Digitally Re-Mastered for Excellent Picture and Sound." There is nothing excellent about the picture or sound quality. While it's slightly better than the many poor copies of this film that are available it's still pretty bad. This appears to have been "remastered" from an old VHS tape from TV. This is a public domain movie the copyright of which has expired. The film itself is rather nostalgic and will appeal to fans of old family movies and Lon McCallister, if the poor quality isn't too distracting.
Indeed a Hidden Gem in Need of Polish

I agree with both reviewers, especially the comment that this film deserves better restoration than it has received. It's early Phil Karlson, and one can sense the grim sincerity, the commitment to theme and detail, and the simmering violence that were to explode in the fifties into the best of Karlson -- 99 River Street, The Phenix City Story, The Scarface Mob (the theatrical release version of the Untouchables pilot) -- and later into Walking Tall. Despite the muddy transfer, I became absorbed in this film. The scenes involving the cougar are unflinching and avoid cheating through editing -- would love to know how Karlson managed to film them!
Very good Phil Karson film set during the Depression
June 7, 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Very good Phil Karson film set during the Depression. Very personal with a vicious, violent fight between Foster and Forrest Tucker, a trademark of Karlson. he films the landscape like he films the streets in his films noir and gets a sense of oppression. The print is slightly superior to the VHS but not really restored

The Big Cat
March 1, 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I love these older movies. I'm not much on reviews. These movies give us a peek into times gone by. The hardships, the different views of lifes' problems ,the outcomes and emotional struggles. This movie does all that with a romance and a kiler cougar thrown in.
