Herbie Rides Again

Synopsis: Alonzo Hawk is a mean-spirited property developer who has bought several blocks of land in the downtown district in order to build a gigantic shopping mall. There is one problem however; an elderly widow named Steinmetz won't sell the one remaining lot that Hawk needs to proceed with his scheme. So he resorts to all manner of chicanery, legal or otherwise, to get it. Fortunately, the widow Steinmetz has an ace up her sleeve in the form of Herbie, the miraculous Volkswagen.

On the contrary. I would do

everything in my power

to help that tough,

no-good little old lady.

I'd give her a large sum

for that worthless property

and provide, at special price to her,

a lifetime lease in Eternity Towers,

that beautiful new haven

for helpless old people like her.

It has a gymnasium, a sauna,

and old Rudolph Valentino,

Sessue Hayakawa movies.

A beauty parlor, a hobby centre,

and instead of

cooking her heart out

over a hot stove,

automatic machines in every hall

will lavish her with everything

from pizza to hot chili.

Wouldn't it make your whole being

happy to be part of all that?

- When can I start?

- Here's the address. Get moving.

- Here.

- Thanks, pal.

Isn't it breathtaking?

Yeah, it's a mess alright.

That guy Hawk ought to be hung.


I'm coming!

Mrs.. Steinmetz?

I'm Willoughby Whitfield.

- I'd like to discuss some business.

- Come in, won't you?

I can't. This car

has rolled onto my foot.

Oh, dear.

I guess you forgot to set the brake.

Herbie, aren't you ashamed?

Get off Mr. Whitfield's foot!

Herbie protects me.


But I am capable

of taking care of myself.

I was about to make myself

a nice cup of tea.

- Come in and have one with me.

- Thank you.

I have to humor Herbie.

He used to be a famous racing car.

But his driver went to Europe

to drive foreign cars,

so he's a little sensitive.

- You can understand that.

- Yes. To get down to business,

people are worried about you living

in this firetrap, so I came to...

Firehouse, young man, not fire trap.

Firehouse, yes. Be that as it may,

the least we can do...

Stop that! That's downright rude.

Do you know what he was playing?

Do Not Trust Him, Gentle Maiden.

Nothing personal.

- He's a friend of Herbie's.

- A friend of Herbie's?

So is Old 22. You may as well meet
