Film: The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes

The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes was a 1969 comedy film released by Walt Disney Productions. It is the first of a trilogy of films starring Kurt Russell as Dexter Riley, a college student at Medfield College, which was seen previously in The Absent-Minded Professor and its sequel Son Of Flubber. The film was remade in 1995, with Kirk Cameron as Dexter Riley.

While installing a replacement part during a thunderstorm, Riley is zapped and becomes a human computer. He now has superhuman mathematical talent, can read and remember the contents of an encyclopedia volume in a few minutes, and speak a language fluently after reading one textbook. His new abilities make Riley a worldwide celebrity, and Medfield's best chance to win a televised quiz tournament with a $100,000 prize.

The success of this film spawned two sequels: Now You See Him, Now You Don't in 1972 and The Strongest Man in the World in 1975.
