Comments:
Hey! The Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes shows the first signs of what Kurt Russell would later do in such masterworks as Escape from New York, Soldier, Big Trouble in Little China and the immortal Tombstone (I forgive him Overboard, BTW...)
 
Hey, Big Trouble in Little China is one of my favorite movies. I don't know if he's an actor's actor, but for the movies I like he's more than adequate.

I still don't know how The Computor Wore Tennis Shoes got on the list. Yeah, it's been quite a while since I've seen it, but it doesn't strike me as a "Five Star Film."

Maybe it counts as the quintessence of the Disney films made in that era. Maybe.
