Synopsis

Bumbling professor Ned Brainard is so forgetful even his own wedding keeps slipping his mind! He is, however, a dedicated inventor, and when he accidentally discovers how to create "flying rubber" the possibilities for its uses are endless! There's still much to learn about how this bouncy new discovery works though - and the potential to get into all manner of scrapes as a result. The film that inspired '90s remake Flubber, this original version has a sweetness and imagination that are almost irresistible.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
