Some college students manage to persuade the town's big businessman, A. J. Arno, to donate a computer to their college. When the problem- student, Dexter Riley, tries to fix the computer, he gets an electric shock and his brain turns to a computer; now he remembers everything he reads. Unfortunately, he also remembers information which was in the computer's memory, like the illegal business Arno is involved in.

Did You Know?
The "campus" shown outside the window of the Dean's office is actually a photograph of buildings in the Walt Disney Studios. This very same backdrop was used during the run of the "Disneyland" television show for scenes shot on the set that served as Walt Disney's "office" when he hosted segments of the program. One oddity is that the building seen in the backdrop was actually the one that housed the real location of Walt's office. See more
The very last question in the $100,000 knowledge contest asked the name of the Midwest city that is in the area known as the "geographic center of the U.S." Medfield answered Lebanon, KS and won the contest. However, that answer is incorrect because of the way the question was phrased. Lebanon, KS is the geographic center of the 48 states, not the U.S. The official markers there are worded that way. The center of the U.S. is a site in South Dakota about 20 miles north of Belle Fourche. There is a USGS benchmark on the spot which moved from Lebanon, KS in 1959 after Alaska and Hawaii became states, 10 years before this movie came out. See more
