Flick Pick: The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes

The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes
(Disney, 1969)

Kurt Russell at all of 17, the year he graduated high school, playing a (Medfield, of course) college doof who gets a memory dump from a crook's computer (roughly the size of a room - nostalgia is fun), and becomes a genius. Typical Disney hijinks ensue, and they're still fun to watch to pass a couple of hours. Shortly after this one, Russell signed a 10-year contract with Disney, becoming the biggest star on their lot through the '70s.
