Disney's "Flubber" starring Robin Williams as Professor Philip Brainard released back in 1997, a remake of the 1961 "The Absent Minded Professor."
In the movie, Professor Brainard's home is right here in the Rose Garden neighborhood. The exterior house shots were filmed at 1962 University Avenue between Bascom Ave and Garden Drive, while the interiors were most likely shot on studio stages at Treasure Island.
San Jose State University and Adobe Systems are also featured. I've posted a clip that shows all three San Jose locations at: http://youtu.be/vjJnM5dKnWU You can read here for a more detailed analysis of the film locations used in the movie.
- Urban legend is that in years past the residents of this abode have passed out green super balls at Halloween, but given the number of trick or treaters that descend that street I think they'd go broke!
- Robin Williams is the only son of Robert Williams, a Ford Executive. In the movie, Adobe System's downtown San Jose tower is featured as the headquarters of Ford, which buys his invention.
- The only person to show up in all 3 versions of Flubber is Actress Nancy Olson who plays the fiancee "Betsy" in the "Absent Minded Professor" and "Son of Flubber." In the movie "Flubber" she is the Ford Company secretary in the Adobe office tower.
- The college in the movie is the mythical Medfield_College which actually features a shot of University of the Pacific in Stockton, which used to be located at the other end of Prof's Brainard's University Avenue where Bellarmine is today.
