Red planet IN MAGNIFICENT COLOR "TWO TICKETS TO PARIS" JOEY DEE GARY CROSBY PLUS A If you like animal movies, filmed and narrated in an entertaining and educational way, you can't help but like Ivan Tors newest entry to the family movie circle, 'Tlipper." The 90-minute movie, beautifully filmed in Mctrocolor off the Florida Keys and the Bahamas, is at the Playhouse Theatre and stars Chuck Connors, of "Rifleman" fame, and introduces newcomer, Luke Halpin.

Don't expect the greatest dialogue in the world because it's not supposed to be a sophisticated movie. It's designed for children, but adults will like it too if they're young at heart. The story deals with the adventures of a young boy, Sandy, who finds a 300-pound injured dolphin and tows (in a little row-boat) him back to his home. There the dolphin, promptly named Flipper, is cared for until he recovers. During the dolphin's recovery period, he is taught to do tricks by the boy.

After the fish is well, Sandy's father releases him. However, every time they go fishing, Flipper leads them to select fishing spots. The pet also shows up in the nick of time during a shark attack. The camerawork is skillfully-done. The dolphin actually was trained for the movie and did all the tricks as shown on film.

Dolphins are shown to be so friendly, gentle and intelligent in the movie, that you'll come to the conclusion that every family should't be without one. MARLENE MATOUK.
