Namu, the Killer Whale (re-issued as Namu, My Best Friend) is a 1966 American film about a killer whale (orca) being studied by a local marine biologist and initially feared by local townspeople. The fictional story was filmed on location in the San Juan Islands and at Rich Cove near Port Orchard in the US state of Washington. The film ‘starred’ the orca Namu, one of the first orcas ever displayed in captivity.

”…Live and let live, let Nature be your teacher Respect the life of your fellow creature Live and let live, whatever you do And always remember the killer whale, Namu.”
