The Day the Fish Came Out.

Written, directed and produced by Michael Cacoyannis (Zorba The Greek), this Greek-British comedy is based on an actual incident when two atomic bombs were accidentally dropped on a Spanish town. The film moves the story to a Greek island, which is explained in the opening sequence of a chorus of Spanish dancers, and tells the story of the changes that take place on the island after the bombs are dropped. When the pilots of the plane carrying the bombs realise that they've lost their load they head to the island to get help. The government beats them to it and sends an agent disguised as a resort developer. They are all busily looking for the weapons when the island is suddenly filled with clamoring, hedonistic tourists who think that the developer is going to build the best resort in the area. The fish around the island then begin to mysteriously die and the tourists begin to give in their wildest disires...
