5.0 out of 5 stars FLIPPER-1963 December 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Flipper 1963 is a good family film, but i dont like the chorus of what sounds like little childrens voices singing everyone loves the king of the sea, ever so kind and gentle is he, okay for a family film but it sounds like something that would make people think flipper is sappy and inspire put down jokes. One person said flipper is just a rehash of lassie, in some stories like the Ditching, where you hear go for help flipper were counting on you, youre our only hope but youll find stories like shark hunt or even flippers hour of peril quite different from lassie and the wolf cub. Flipper went more for adventure than the tearducts

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic family fare... April 26, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The original Flipper movie is simple, and unpretentious tale that tickles the heartstrings. The story line is uncomplicated, with touches that keep it grounded in reality.
Chuck Connors, best known for playing Lucas McCain on "The Rifleman" TV program, is once again cast as a strong father figure. Here he is Porter Ricks, a fisherman trying to eek out a living, and support his wife (Kathleen Maguire) and young son Sandy (Luke Halpin). Life is very hard, as after surviving a hurricane, Porter must leave his family to repair his boat damaged in the storm.
While his father is away, Sandy is exploring the sea with some friends. A dolphin (Flipper), is shot with a spear by another boy in the party. The shooter is himself injured, and is taken away for medical attention. Sandy returns to the scene, with shotgun in hand, prepared to put the injured dolphin out of it's misery. Of course that can't happen, and Sandy brings the injured dolphin home.
Flipper's recovery is a most miraculous one, but the real story deals with the relationship between father and son, and the growth of the young man. Sandy is a good kid, but not syrupy sweet. Ricks loves his son, but is determined to have him face the realities of life. Thanks to Flipper, both father and son learn some valuable lessons in life.
The story of Flipper's origin, has a more serious tone than the TV program. Though it doesn't have a lot of warm and fuzzy moments, it is still fairly good family entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great family movie. August 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
If you're looking for a wholesome adventure that the whole family can enjoy, then this is a good choice. The family portrayed here exhibits good family values--respect for each other and for authority, responsibility, and they even pray! I found nothing objectionable in this video for my 5-year-old and I'm not easy to please. I highly recommend this version over the more recent one.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love dolphins, this one's for you! February 13, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
My nine-year-old daughter and I both love dolphins. We very much enjoyed this movie. The part where Flipper displays his talents at performing tricks is particularly endearing. It was good to hear the Flipper theme song in its entirety. I recommend it highly for family viewing - much more than the newer Paul Hogan version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flipper DVD October 29, 2004
Format:DVD
The color was really good on this DVD, and the picture clear. Having grown up in south Florida, I can remember playing in many areas much like you see (except for maybe the scenes filmed in the bahamas). It's a good clean movie, with action and outdoor adventure. Now maybe they will release Gentle Ben on DVD?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great family sunday night popcorn film. February 9, 2007
Format:DVD
Good clean fun. Hollywood has lost the art of film making over the last 40 years. This is an excellent step back in time for film buffs. A great and entertaining film for the whole family. The kids will go to sleep at night dreaming of sunny beaches and friendly animals after watching this, instead of wondering who will survive on "Survivor", or who's going to bomb what on "24". If your wondering what your kids should be watching it is this movie.

What can I say about Flipper? It's a great story and will warm your heart. Children love it and adults find themselves glued to the TV as well. Highly recommend to those who are tired of all these techno over the edge productions that really aren't suitable for the entire family. It's a classic and everyone should have this as a part of their media library.
