Orca (1977) A killer whale's pregnant mate is maimed and killed by Captain Nolan during a capture attempt. The angry male orca, after grieving the loss of its mate and offspring, seeks revenge against Captain Nolan. He causes serious damage to a fishing town where Nolan is hiding out, and lures Nolan, Rachel Bedford (a biologist) and a Native American to an ice field for a final confrontation... on HIS terms.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Rachel: The killer whale. He is a mammal with warm blood, found in every sea.
  • Rachel: I'd insisted on leaving South Harbor with them. I told myself that somehow I was responsible for Nolan's state of mind. That I had filled his head with romantic notions about a whale capable not only of profound grief, which I believed, but also of calculated and vindictive actions, which I found hard to be believe, despite all that had happened.
  • [Captain Nolan has just seen the orca kill a member of his crew after the orca knocked the house into the ocean. He then looks out to the water & sees the killer whale leaping out of the water, breaching] Captain Nolan: You revengeful sonofabitch! You win! [the orca keeps breaching, as if taunting Captain Nolan] Captain Nolan: You want revenge? Well, you'll have it! I'll come out and fight you! You revengeful sonofabitch! [Nolan's boat, the 'Bumpo', steams out of the little harbor the next morning with the fishermen watching as he goes to fight the orca]
Movie Trivia:
  • The killer whale was portrayed by a combination of stock footage taken at Marine World in Redwood City, California, and an animatronic whale which was filmed off the coasts of Malta and Newfoundland.
  • In the mid-80s, Dino De Laurentiis considered a sequel to King Kong (1976) that would have had him going head-to-head with an Orca.
