Trivia

This movie was going to be called ERASMUS WITH FRECKLES, after the book on which it was based. But Brigitte Bardot only agreed to appear on the condition that her name did not appear in the credits or any of the promotional materials. The only way the producers could capitalize on Americans' fascination with Bardot was by changing the title to alert the audience that she was in the movie. See more »

Goofs

Notwithstanding the opening background shots of the Golden Gate bridge, the exteriors of this film were NOT filmed in the San Francisco bay area. After about 30 seconds into the film, the exteriors are shot in the Seattle/Tacoma puget sound bay area. The boat "Issaquah" is the giveaway. See more »

Forgettable Time Passer
12 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Contrived family comedy with a good cast. Jimmy Stewart plays Professor Leaf, who hates science and loves the arts. Professor Leaf is alarmed to discover his young son Erasmus (Billy Mumy) is a math prodigy. It becomes headline news and turns their family's life upside down, leading to a deal with a con man and some gambling and other stuff. Anyway, the main point of the film, as evidenced by the title, is that the boy is in love with the actress Brigitte Bardot. He writes her a letter and eventually heads to Paris with his father to meet her. It's all very blah and forgettable, but not necessarily bad. Stewart gives it his best but it's just mediocre material. Good cast does little to help. Mumy is good, as is Glynis Johns as the wife. Brigitte Bardot appears briefly as herself. If you're a die-hard Stewart or Bardot fan, check it out. Otherwise it's not worth the bother. I dug Jimmy's blue station wagon though!
