When “Flubber” filmed in Stockton

OK, so Robin Williams didn’t come to Stockton. But the production company of his movie “Flubber” did. In 1996 a movie production unit came to University of the Pacific.

Among other touches, the movie-makers renamed the college.

 

 As you can see from this edition of UOP’s student newspaper, numerous students got jobs as extras

Here’s a quote from the movie.

“I know I love her, Weebo. Every neuron in my limbic system is saturated with phenylethylamine. That triggers euphoria, elation exhilaration. Truth is, Weebo, I’m not absent-minded because I’m selfish, crazy or inconsiderate. I’m absent-minded because I’m in love with Sara.”
