Tigers on a boat

Let’s give the Soviets credit for coming up with the basic concept used in Snakes on a Plane with Samuel L. Jackson.

The 1961 film Полосатый Рейс, in which tigers and lions are set loose on a steam ship thanks to one mischievous monkey, contains a great line for the ages:
Я не трус, но я боюсь

Arguably better than Mr. Jackson’s, “I’m tired of these motherf***ing snakes on this motherf***ing plane!”

(it comes at the 1:20 mark of this clip)

    The soundtrack is the best part. Nothing like big band and great cats.

    I like the scene starting at 3:00
