David Niven stars as a somewhat prim and proper Englishman who is hired to be an "English gentleman" tutor to the son of the Japanese ambassador. Whilst Niven pretends to impress the boy by recounting all kinds of hair raising experiences in the army, he is in fact a "paper tiger." But his life changes when he and the boy are kidnapped by terrorists. This tour de force performance by David Niven allows him to show off his considerable comic and dramatic acting ability.
