FLIPPER (Released to Theaters USA 1963)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

 Flipper can be understood best when the audience understands the time in which it was produced and the thrill children, who came from its decade, may have experienced when allowed to view life along the sea compared to environments they may have been raised in. It’s a suitable watch that relies on Chuck Conners and Luke Halpin to tell its story. Watch for Kathleen Maguire’s performance. There is a sequel film to this movie named Flipper’s New Adventure and a television series as well as a remake of this film with Paul Hogan and Elijah Wood.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. It’s a broadening experience for children who have never experienced life along the ocean and a good introduction to actor Chuck Conners outside his usual Rifleman television role.
