The Strongest Man in the World ★★½ 1975 (G)

Another crazy mix-up involves Dexter Riley (Russell) and his friends at Medfield College in wacky adventures. One of their experiment gets mixed up with one of the students' breakfast cereal and turns out to give humans super-strength for a short time. The dean makes a deal with the local cereal company, and crooks hired by a rival company try to steal the formula. Typically enjoyable Disney live-action fare from the '70s may provide fun for the young 'uns, and will definitely bring back fond memories for their parents. 92m/C VHS, DVD .
