Movie Info

A boy and his dolphin are soon parted after Sandy (Luke Halpin) saves an injured dolphin from a potentially deadly harpoon. Flipper is nursed back to health and Sandy wishes to keep the dolphin as a family pet. Sandy's dad Porter (Chuck Conners) is the fish farmer who convinces him Flipper was meant to live in the wild of the ocean and not at the lagoon by their landlocked home. Sandy lets Flipper loose, expecting never to see the dolphin again. When a menacing shark threatens to attack Sandy, the dedicated dolphin attempts to rescue the boy who saved his life from the deadly jaws of the aquatic monster. Halpin and Flipper later would reprise their roles in the popular television program of the same name.
