Namu, the Killer Whale (a.k.a. Namu, My Best Friend) [DVD] (1966)
There are movies ab...
show moreout scary sea creatures, like Jaws, and friendlier fellows, like Free Willy. Namu falls into the latter category. The 1966 film takes its name from a Native American word for "whirlwind." This particular whirlwind is a Northwest killer whale whose mate was killed by fishermen. Marine biologist, Dr. Donner (Robert Lansing), decides to protect and study the whale until he's ready to return to the sea. Lisa (Robin Mattson), a local San Juan girl who lost her father in a fishing accident, becomes fascinated with Namu. Actually, she's frightened at first, but that changes as she comes to understand him better. Meanwhile, her mother (Lee Meriwether), becomes just as fascinated with... Dr. Donner. Just in time, too, as the townspeople would rather see Namu put down than saved, but Dr. Donner, Lisa, and her mother set out to prove that he means them no harm in this ecologically-minded family film. --Kathleen C.
