Did You Know?

On March 30, 1964 Luke Halpin appeared as a celebrity contestant on the long running show "To Tell The Truth" alongside two others young men pretending to be him. The four panelists ask questions of the three contestants to try and find the real Luke Halpin. Luke starred with the dolphin 'Mitzi' in the original "Flipper" movie and with 'Suzie' in "Flipper's New Adventure". He was asked which of the two dolphins he preferred and he answered Mitzi because she was more affectionate.See more »

Nicely acted dolphin adventure, not only for kids fun!, 20 December 2000
Author: vinnienh from Den Helder, Holland

It is largely due to the participation of handsome Luke Halpin that this film drew my attention. Although Flipper the dolphin is well trained and does a good job it's also nice to see "Sandy Ricks" appear in a movie again.
