The original plan was for Roman Polanski to direct The Day of the Dolphin. That would have changed the movie considerably.
(full movie on You Tube for a limited time).
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.

The place for this feature film starring Willem Dafoe (left) was Thailand.
