Whiffs is a 1975 comedy film directed by Ted Post, produced by Brut Productions and released theatrically in the U.S. by 20th Century Fox. It stars Elliott Gould as a gullible military private who volunteers to be the subject of numerous military biological and chemical weaponry experiments, and later robs banks as a result.[1]



Parts of the film were shot in Dugway, Stockton and Tooele, Utah.[2]



TV Guide wrote, in reference to the story line of Elliott Gould's character behaving like a chimpanzee because he breathed in an experimental chemical, "The scriptwriter must have taken a good whiff of the gas himself each time he sat down at his typewriter."[3]
