Fred MacMurray.... great movie.

Saw it at at Saturday matinee at the old Camargo Theater in Madeira Ohio- about 1960, if memory serves.

Went there with my best bud. We’d go with beanshooters and pockets filled with beans. Sit in the back.... or up in the balcony... fill our mouths with beans and then let ‘er rip- machine gun style.

Then we’d grab our heads, yell “Ow!”, and turn around... pretending that we’d been hit from behind as well.

Ever hear a mouthful of beans splatter against a movie screen?

Yeah, management didn’t think it was funny either.... One time (the time they caught us and the last time we brought beanshooters to the Camargo) they escorted us out of the theater and deposited us curbside.

Memories... Fred MacMurray and his amazing discovery of his accidental invention- Flubber.

And of course, who can forget Francis the Talking Mule?
