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.

A friend of Kathy Troutt was hired to swim underwater with a plywood shark fin on the surface.  The ‘shark’ was menacing Skippy in a boat.  The place was Palm Beach, Sydney (1969).   Ace underwater cameraman Ron Taylor designed and built the shark fin.

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

The Blue Lagoon script had the boy star of the film riding a pair of dolphin as per this example. That plan was dropped when finding and then training dolphin in Fiji was not going to be practical.  Kathy Troutt was  ‘body double’ for the young actress who starred in the movie.  The Blue Lagoon link (below) is to You Tube (9 December 2013)
