A college professor invents an anti-gravity substance which a corrupt businessman wants for himself.
Most of the cars in the film are Ford (or their subsidiary Mercury) automobiles. Co-star Leon Ames owned several Ford automobile dealerships in the Los Angeles area in 1961 when the film was made. One was on Vermont near Beverly Blvd., others were in Studio City, Torrance, Encino and Redondo Beach. Another Ames Ford dealership was in San Rafael in northern California. Ames likely provided the cars.
Alonzo P. Hawk:
Hey, you know something? You're all right son. 'Course, you got a little of your mother in you, but actually, well, you're just me all over again.
When Alonzo Hawk is talking to Ned and Betsy about 'merging together', Betsy is putting on his flubberized shoes. Right before Alonzo gets up you clearly see that the soles of the shoes do not have Flubber applied, although he jumps as if he did. He never changes shoes.
Also available in a colorized version (made in 1986 and later in 1997), on TV, VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray.
