Stock music by Robert Van Eps and Dominic Frontiere was integrated into Samuel Matlovsky's original score for "Namu". Van Eps' music was composed for "The Outer Limits" TV segment entitled "Tourist Attraction", which was directed by Namu's László Benedek. The ominous-sounding cues were used for the amphibious fish-monsters, the Ichthyosaurs. See more »
This beautifully remarkable movie was produced in 1966 and provides any family member a chance to enjoy the interaction between benevolent humans and a creature considered a threat. It pits an ignorant, small town against an oceanographer (Robert Lansing) and a shop keeper (Lee Meriweather) in working to educate the local township that Namu is not a threat, but a lonely animal needing attention. The scene in which Lansing and Meriweather engage in play with Namu inside the lagoon is priceless and the background music is equally so. Moreover, when Namu miraculously rescues the very man (John Anderson) who tried to kill him, makes this movie unbelievably precious. Mandatory viewing for everyone.
