A college genius (Tommy Kirk) accidentally develops a means of reading minds. Turning this new ability to good use – in contrast to the way some of us might be tempted to exploit it – he tries to solve crimes, but he winds up in court himself.
A pleasant, undemanding Disney comedy from the reliable director of The Absent-Minded Professor (1961), this was was originally made with plans to broadcast it as two hour-long Disney TV shows, but then re-edited for theatrical release.
The characters were stretched a little too far for a 1965 sequel, The Monkey’s Uncle.
