Now You See Him, Now You Don’t (1972)

kurt russell disney movieI’d tell you to see this movie, but… you know.

 

Darn those crazy kids and their accidental scientific breakthroughs that change the course of the world.

I watched this film all the time growing up, so it’s just laced with nostalgia (and potentially other narcotics from the 1970s). There’s just something about that old, funky background music that makes me love this movie more than life itself. I honestly want the soundtrack to just play behind me whenever I walk down the street.

kurt russell disneyNow You See Him, Now You Don’t was the second installment of a Disney trilogy that starred Kurt Russell, Joe Flynn, and Cesar Romero getting mixed up in various sci-fi capers. This one was sandwiched between The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes and Strongest Man in the World. Both of those were also near-misses for the Oscar.

OH, SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW: This post is not short, I just wrote half of it in invisible ink. (And I think it’s safe to say that we all hope the other half includes a funnier joke.)

As Dexter Riley so aptly demonstrated, we cannot put too much trust in that which can or cannot be seen by mortal eyes. Focus on the unseen but ever-existent truths of eternity and you’ll always see things as they really are.

For the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” — 2 Corinthians 4:18
