Directed by William Girdler
Starring Christopher George, Andrew Prine, Richard Jaeckel
A park ranger attempts to halt the wild rampage of an 18 ft tall, 2,000 lb Man-eating grizzly bear that terrorizes a National Forest, having developed a taste for human flesh. However, a drunken hunting party complicates matters. Widely considered a Jaws rip-off, Grizzly used many of the same plot devices as its shark predecessor, which had been a huge box office success during the previous year. The giant grizzly bear in the film was portrayed by a Kodiak bear named Teddy, who was 11 ft tall.
