These two comedic treasures "fly" perfectly together. The brainy, but truly absent-minded Professor Brainard tries out his invention of gravity-defying, flying rubber by adding a special "lift" to Medfield College's basketball team in The Absent-Minded Professor (Fred MacMurray, Ed Wynn. 1961/96 min.). His resourceful invention, known as flubber, bounces back in an equally hilarious sequel loaded with all sorts of flight- and laugh-generating applications in Son of Flubber (Fred MacMurray, Keenan Wynn. 1963/103 min.). Directed by Robert Stevenson. B&w/G/fullscreen & widescreen.
