I recently received this poster for Day of the Dolphin in my inbox and was about to post it without commentary, since I figured it’d be impossible to do better than “Unwittingly, he trained a dolphin to kill the president of the United States.” Mark my words, when I inevitably die in a freak fart-lighting accident, I want that on my tombstone.
Believe it or not, it does get better. Would you like to see:
George C. Scott and Paul Sorvino demand answers from a talking dolphin?
Edward Hermann discuss the artistry of director Mike Nichols (!!!) on the set of Day of the Dolphin?
“He can then ask the dolphin, because he has no guile, ‘What did your father tell you? What did the father of the universe tell you?’”
Final scene of Day of the Dolphin:
Edward Hermann discusses speaking to God… through a talking dolphin. (Must be a Scientologist).
To the old timers out there who were already aware of the existence of this film: I’m sorry if I’ve bored you. And may you burn in hell for not sending me this sooner.
