  • Political thriller with a touching intelligence!

    • 8/12/17

    Thoughtfully scripted film with George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere, in heartfelt performances, as two marine biologists who are unwillingly thrust into a high-stakes game of intrigue when their two intelligent dolphins are stolen by a group of political extremists to serve as instruments in a diabolical assassination plot! There are moments of touching, inter-species communication and affection amid mounting tension as the story plays out to its climax, and the character performances pull the viewer into the film's unfolding suspense! One of Scott's best (and, unfortunately, least acknowledged roles) as the lead scientist who has trained his pet dolphins in with a strong, supporting cast of co-stars which include Trish Van Devere, Paul Sorvino, Fritz Weaver, John Dehner and Edward Herrmann. Sentimental and mesmerizing, this is one film that will 'stay' with you long after you see it! A beautifully composed musical score by George Delerue adds emotional impact to the scenes with the cast and their dolphin co-stars... but, be advised: There is a touching conclusion to the film that makes it a very memorable entry into the long, distinguished career of its main star, George C. Scott!

    I love this movie but haven't seen it for many years. Why doesn't TCM carry it. You have most of Scott's movies.
