A classic family movie from 1969, about a lovable Volkswagen Beetle. The charming plot is lightweight, but great fun. So successful was this film that it spawned three sequels: Herbie Rides Again (1974), Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo (1977) and Herbie Goes Bananas (1980). This one’s the best of the bunch.
