What's Up, Doc?

When absent-minded Musicologist Professor Howard Bannister (Ryan O'Neal) arrives in San Francisco to try and win a research grant, the last thing he expects is to have his world turned upside down by Miss Judy Maxwell (Barbra Streisand), a girl who causes chaos wherever she goes. In the space of two days he gets mixed up with a millionnaire, jewel thieves, kidnappers, a spy and a government agent; accidentally sets his hotel room on fire, finds himself sitting on a grocery deliverer's bicycle inside a Chinese Dragon and ends up dressed as a Cantonese Mandarin in a car chase through the city in a stolen VW Beetle.

Revealing mistake: In the early part of the chase scene, when the person hanging the banner swings into the pane of glass, you can actually see it start to shatter before he touches it.
