the extension ".tar" makes a difference! It's dumb.
I renamed the file to file.tar and it untarred fine.

If it does not have tar extension, tar on Solaris 10 did not do it! Even though it is the same file.

".tgz" files are normally short for "tar.gz"

ahh... hence a manual rename step is needed in between for Solaris.

Again, it is really dumb that Solaris cannot untar a file which simply does not have a .tar extension

It would be dumb if it was real.
Just like most of Unix utilities, Solaris tar doesn't require any specific extension (or extension at all) for its input or output files.
