July 12: Kurt Russell Turns Invisible

On this day in 1972 the Disney live-action comedy feature Now You See Him, Now You Don't was released.
A sequel to the 1969 The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, Kurt Russell returned to the role of Dexter Reilly - a chemistry student who invents a spray that makes it wearer invisible! Unfortunately A. J. Arno (a crook played by Cesar Romero) wants to steal it for himself.
The film also featured comedy-great Joe Flynn (as Eugene Higgins, the dean of Medfield College) and character actor Jim Backus (as Timothy Forsythe). In 1975 Now You See Him, Now You Don't became the first Disney film to be shown on television in a two-hour time slot. Previous Disney films had either been edited or split into two one-hour time slots.
