Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Victor Jory assumes the title role in The Man Who Talks to Whales. Jory plays a Hemingwayesque codger who goes on a search for the rare California grey whale. Along the way, he must fend off those short-sided "sportsmen" who would wipe the whales from the face of the earth if given a chance. Filmed in 1976, the 91-minute The Man Who Talks to Whales wasn't shown theatrically until 1979, at which time it was pointlessly retitled The Man Who Talks With Whales. The film's TV exposure has been generally limited to PBS pledge weeks.
