Melvin Byrd, who dreams of being a scientist, is a Cape Kennedy "miniscule molecular particle surveillance monitor" - in short, a janitor. His job is to keep a major rocket project completely dust-free, and this he does with his own hilariously fantastic inventions - including a literal attack on dirt by a "knight on a white horse". In his work, he meets Judy, a chimp involved in a top-secret project, which leads Melvin into the one room strictly off-limits to him. Not until he has entered the project room does Melvin learn that any man entering it will be negatively ionized - making him fly like a bird. Written by
The army military uniforms are not being worn correctly such as the sergeant not wearing his chevrons on both sleeves and the general's collar "US" insignia in some scenes switches between the enlisted and officers versions. See more »

This Hilarious 1966 film starring Soupy Sales and co-starring Tab Hunter has unfortunately never been released on vhs/dvd.Hopefully,someday it will!!Soupy sales plays a Janitor for a nuclear missle site and accidently as a result of an experiment gains anti-gravity powers that permits him to fly and makes him irresistable to women!!Soupy Sales reminds me of another great Comic Genius from West Virginia "Don Knotts".Hopefully someday,"Birds Do it",will be shown on TV and even better vhs/dvd!!
