Jackie Hickmott and Kathy Troutt were permitted to swim with dolphin at Sydney’s beautiful Taronga Zoo on Sydney Harbor.  The dolphin pool has since closed making 16mm film of this swim very unique today. (A better quality transfer from the footage may be possible).

Screenplay writer Buck Henry (The Day of the Dolphin) spotted Kathy working in this London UK pantomime and made the offer for her to work in USA on this major film production.  Details elsewhere.

“Day of The Dolphin” (MOVIE)

Peter Moss worked with The Day of the Dolphin and later a film director in Hollywood, before that cameraman (DOP) on FLASHPOINT (below – full movie)

The original plan was for Roman Polanski to direct The Day of the Dolphin.  That would have changed the movie considerably.

George C. Scott was the leading Hollywood actor, at the time of this production in Florida.  Kathy was part of the crew. The film production Day of the Dolphin took another strange twist  for all.  Director Roman Polanski was to make the film  but canceled in the wake of the tragedy with his wife, actress Sharon Tate, murdered by the Charles Manson mob when she was eight months pregnant.

Polanski was shattered.

With a new director and new plans, the fate and future of the film project was now with Mike Nichols in charge and a family friendly project planned.

Kathy was hired to train the dolphin and care for them.

Jack Evans dreamed of displaying a performing Killer whale. It was a futile plan that cost him dearly.

Dugong are not held in captivity - some people mistake them for 'deformed dolphin' - believe it or don't. We need more knowledge of the sea in the media.
