Trivia:
This 1972 movie was the second in a trilogy of three high-concept Disney fantasy-comedies all made three years apart, all starring actors Kurt Russell, Joe Flynn and Cesar Romero, and all having some form of technical or sci-fi theme. 1969's The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969) (robotics / human computers) was followed by 1972's Now You See Him, Now You Don't (1972) (invisibility) and 1975's The Strongest Man in the World (1975) (super-strength).See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When Dexter, Kurt Russell, dips things in the invisibility solution like the tweezers and the ruler you can see for an instant the end that falls off so as to give the appearance of invisibility.See more »

Arno Strikes Back, 16 August 2014
Author: utgard14 from USA

College genius Dexter Riley (Kurt Russell) creates a formula for invisibility spray. Villainous businessman A.J. Arno (Caesar Romero) is released from jail and immediately starts scheming to turn Dexter's university into a casino. Dexter uses the invisibility spray to help save the school but Arno discovers his secret and steals the formula.

Second in Disney's Dexter Riley trilogy with Kurt Russell, Caesar Romero, and company. It's an enjoyable bit of fluff. You won't hurt your brain, that's for sure. Russell and the rest of the cast are good. Joe Flynn as Dean Higgins steals every scene he's in. Decent special effects and family-friendly humor. It's a fun movie that should appeal to young and old alike.
