Herbie raises hell. This sequel to THE LOVE BUG was one of Disney's most successful films of the 1970s. Herbie, the heroic Volkswagen, comes to the rescue of Mrs. Steinmetz (Helen Hayes) and Nicole (Stefanie Powers), who are trying to prevent the villainous Hawk (Keenan Wynn, playing the

same character he portrayed in THE ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR) from building a skyscraper where their house stands. Willoughby Whitfield (Ken Berry), Hawk's lawyer nephew, also joins with Herbie in the fight to stop the construction. Herbie enlists the help of all the VWs in San Francisco, and they

arrive like the cavalry to fight off the imposing bulldozers. The "Herbie" films proved to be so popular that the Germans produced a ripoff of them in 1971 titled EIN KAEFER GEHT AUFS GANZE (their VW was called Dudu). Egregious kiddie slapstick, punctuated by shameless overacting.
