The trained dolphins who played Alpha and Beta were actually named Buck (for screenwriter Buck Henry) and Ginger (for dancer Ginger Rogers). On the next to the last day of filming, when their parts were done, they escaped and never returned. It was almost if they knew that for their roles it was a wrap. See more »

George C. Scott has taught a pair of dolphins to understand and speak English. But he didn't realize the foundation funding him is actually a covert government agency. Now the agency has taken the two dolphins and plans to use them as assassins. Okay, this all sounds just ridiculous I know but it's actually pretty good. It's directed by Mike Nichols, which is somewhat surprising, as he is not well-known for sci-fi or thrillers. It's written by Buck Henry, who is more known for comedies. Despite stepping out of their respective comfort zones, I think both do a fine job. The cast is good. The story is very interesting. The dolphin scenes are wonderful. Perhaps it's a little giggle-worthy at times but ultimately it's a smart, entertaining film that's pretty unique.
