"Jim, it's happening right under our noses and we can't see it. We take machines and we stuff 'em with information until they're smarter than we are. Take a car. Most guys spread more love and time and money on their car in a week than they do on their wife and kids in a year. Pretty soon, you know what? The machine starts to think it *is* somebody." - Tennessee Steinmetz, The Love Bug (1968)

Walt Disney Productions, Rated G, 108 minutes.

Directed By: Robert Stevenson

Cast:

Dean Jones - Jim Douglas

Michele Lee - Carole Bennett

David Tomlinson - Peter Thorndyke

Buddy Hacket - Tennessee Steinmetz

Herbie as himself

Domestic Box Office Gross: $50,576,808

Synopsis: A Volkswagen, Herbie, has a mind of his own and helps a down on his luck race car driver.

Fact: Herbie's number 53 is a tribute to Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Don Drysdale, who shares the same number.

Trivia: Dean Jones kept the only trick Herbie.

Movie Mistake: At the drive in Carole's earrings are on when talking to Jim and off when talking to the hippies.

My Take: I loved this movie when I was a kid. It's one of those movies that brings fond memories when brought up. Watch it with the family, your kids will love it!
