The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes Movie Review Summary

Actors: Kurt Russell, Cesar Romero, Joe Flynn

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes

This 1969 movie was one of the better Disney live action flicks, given an absurd premise. Some college students convince prominent businessman A.J. Arno (Romero) to donate a computer to the college, and in an electronic accident, an average sophomore (Russell) gets infused with all the computer's knowledge, including facts about Arno's criminal dealings. Things seem to go swimmingly as the boy sweeps a "College Bowl" style TV game competition, until Arno realizes what he knows. Flynn, recognizable as Captain Binghamton from "McHale's Navy" and Havershaw in "The Love Bug," plays Dean Higgins, and all three characters were revived in the subsequent films "Now You See Him, Now You Don't" and "The Strongest Man In the World." Best moment is the one where Marcel Duchamp's surrealist classic "Nude Descending a Staircase" makes an appearance.
