Man-Eater is actually a Samuel Fuller retread from 1969, re-released in 1975 for SOME reason.  It was originally released as either Shark, Caine or Twist of the Knife depending on which source you’re consulting. The film is somewhat notorious because a stuntman was actually killed by a shark while filming. And perhaps not in the most tasteful of moves, the producers decided to tout that fact in the initial ad campaigns, a decision that, along with some extensive re-editing, caused Fuller to disavow the film altogether.

“What happened with your first two marriages?”

“My wives divorced me.”

“Why?”

“They said I led too dull a life.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
This post is part of the For the Love of Film Blogathon, a new age telethon to raise funds for The National Film Preservation Foundation to help bring The White Shadow (a/k/a White Shadows), an early silent film that a certain master of suspense did just about everything for except direct — assistant director, screenwriter, film editor, production designer, art director, and set decorator, to the streaming masses and help defray the costs of adding a new musical soundtrack.
