Professor Leaf, an absent-minded poet with a prejudice against the sciences, is forced to face the fact that his son is a math prodigy with little artistic talent of his own. Written by
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 »
Approximately 1:13 into the movie the professor asks Terry, the naked model to cover up and she quickly fastens her bikini top by tying the straps together at the back of her neck. In the next scene you can see her back and the straps are fastened with clips straight down to the horizontal strap. See more »
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!
