Disney does it again in this delightful comedy. Dexter (Kurt Russell), a college student, acquires the entire contents of a computer's memory bank when an electrical accident causes its transfer into his brain. Unfortunately, along with other data, he now possesses information on the

nefarious activities of the computer's original owner, gangster A.J. Arno (Cesar Romero). When Dexter becomes a contestant on a quiz show to raise money for the college, the word "applejack" triggers an enumeration of Arno's illegal activities. The chase is on, and an exciting one it is. The

success of this film led to two follow-ups that also starred Russell: NOW YOU SEE HIM, NOW YOU DON'T, in which he discovers a formula that makes him invisible, and THE STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD, in which he discovers a formula that gives him great strength.
