The Absent Minded Professor (1961)

Fred MacMurray as "Prof. Ned Brainard"

Disney comedy about a professor who invents a revolutionary flying rubber, which he dubs "flubber". Not only does the professor's Model T Ford fly through the air with the greatest of ease, but his secret weapon helps the college basketball team to victory, thanks to flubber-enhanced boots, but while his long-suffering girlfriend tries to win the professor's heart, crooks are trying to steal his formula.
