From Mike Nichols, the legendary director of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate, Catch-22, Carnal Knowledge and Silkwood, comes this nostalgic favorite of those who grew up in the ’70s. The Day of the Dolphin stars George C. Scott (They Might Be Giants) as a scientist who trains dolphins to speak, only to find them enmeshed in a government assassination plot. Acclaimed screenwriter Buck Henry (What’s Up, Doc?, Candy, The Owl and the Pussycat) adapted this fantasy-adventure from the popular novel by Robert Merle (Weekend at Dunkirk). Two of the film’s best features are the terrific cinematography by the great William A. Fraker (Bullitt, Rosemary’s Baby) and the Oscar-nominated score by Georges Delerue (Platoon, True Confessions). Trish Van Devere (Where’s Poppa?), Paul Sorvino (The Brink’s Job), John Dehner (Support Your Local Gunfighter), Phyllis Davis (TV’s Vega$), Elizabeth Wilson (9 to 5), Edward Herrmann (The Lost Boys) and Fritz Weaver (Nightkill) co-star in one-of-a-kind sci-fi thriller.
