I got it, because - see a dolphin, think Flipper. But I never realized it was a movie, either.

Oh, they've still got the movie well locked down under copyright, along with the characters, it's just certain publicity images that have entered the public domain.

"To Kill a Mockingbird" - in my opinion one of the all time great films. That along with "Gentlemen's Agreement" are the two best message movies ever made. Addressing religious tolerance, racism, socio-economic divisions and topics that are still relevant today. They are great learning tools and discussion starters and should be required viewing for everyone in America (both North and South America) and the entire world. If you haven't seen them, please do.

Agreed on Mockingbird. One of the rare instances where both book and movie are amazing.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what."

I got temporarily confused and typed Dr. Strangelove for the Clockwork Orange clue, luckily for me because I have a feeling I wouldn't have guessed Strangelove for the one it actually belongs with. I've never seen either movie. I've only seen 3 of all the movies on the list but most are iconic enough that it was fairly straightforward to guess, although I had no idea Flipper was a ever a movie.

That ís the answer so you must have typed something wrong. Always check your spelling when an answer isnt accepted (when you know it is the right one)> Maybe you wrote ithc or icht ( not saying you dont know how to speel the word, but sometimes your fingers think otherswise. Because they find a certain combination easier to type. I sooo often type teh instead of the for instance)
