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

When asking Erasmus and the computer to divide 17,590,038,552,578 by 680, Erasmus says it can't be done evenly. He says that it can ONLY be divided by 8,191 and 2,147,483,647. When these two numbers are multiplied together, their product is 17,590,038,552,577. They fail to mention it is divisible by 2. See more »

Quotes

Professor Robert Leaf: Now Panny, there is absolutely no deal in which I would sanction your brother's countenance to sop up the body fluids of countless sweaty little boys.

Dear Brigette
7 May 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Fun James Stewart film about a professor whose son has a dream to meet superstar Brigette Bardot. The circumstances are pleasing and the film has wonderful moments of laughter and tenderness.
