Remember the movie Andre, about the seal? Well, that was dumb. The real Andre was a harbor seal, not a sea lion like in the film. I met the real Andre. I was even in the original documentary that eventually led to the film.
My grandparents lived in Maine, and we happened to see one of Andre’s performances. If you ever see that original film, I’m the guy standing on the rock with the camera. That’s about all I have to say about that. Don’t believe everything you see in movies.
