Family Flicks Film Series: The Love Bug

Family Flicks Film Series: The Love Bug

Co-presented with UCLA Film and Television Archive

When a Volkswagon Bug follows him from the dealership, racecar driver Jim Douglas doesn’t know what to think but soon discovers this is no ordinary car! With the help of his equally eccentric mechanic, played with comic gusto by Buddy Hackett, Douglas takes his four-wheeled magical friend out on the racing circuit while trying to keep it out of the hands of an evil car dealer. The original big-screen incarnation of Herbie, “The Love Bug,” remains a timeless classic for the whole family. Get ready and start your engines for fun! (1968, 35mm, color, 108 min. Dir. Robert Stevenson)
