Review

Almost equally successful sequel to the Disney studio's 1968 smash hit comedy adventure The Love Bug, with Herbie the lovable Volkswagen Beetle (and a few of his friends) taking on a ruthless property developer, played for all the part's worth by Keenan Wynn.

Helen Hayes and Stefanie Powers personably lead the rest of the humans, but it's Herbie's show. Two more sequels followed: Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo (1977) and Herbie Goes Bananas (1980).
