Doctor Dolittle (1967)

A veterinarian who can communicate with animals travels abroad to search for a giant sea snail.


"In a massive attempt to influence AMPAS members at Oscar nomination time in 1968, 20th Century-Fox hosted several mammoth dinners for Academy members promoting the under-performing 'Dolittle' as a potential nominee. The strategy worked, netting the film seven nominations, including Best Picture, and the still-controversial Best Original Song win for "Talk to the Animals." Similar campaigns were launched for the studio's other musical failures, Star! (1968) and Hello, Dolly! (1969) with similar results."
