The living Volkswagen Beetle helps an old lady protect her home from a corrupt developer.
Actor Keenan Wynn reprised his evil character role of villainous & extremely short-tempered, "Alonzo Hawk" from both The Absent Minded Professor (1961) and its sequel Son of Flubber (1963) making Herbie Rides Again (1974) the only picture outside "The Absent-Minded Professor" franchise to feature his character role.
I'm sorry I punched you the first time I met you.
Willoughby Whitfield: Oh, that's okay.
Nicole Harris: And it wasn't very ladylike of me to hit you with a boiled lobster.
Willoughby Whitfield: It's okay.
Nicole Harris: You can hit me back if you want.
Willoughby Whitfield: That isn't exactly what I had in mind.
The model year of Volkswagen used for Herbie shifts back and forth throughout the film. It's most visible when the side rear windows change size from smaller (1963) to larger (1966).
