This lighthearted family film revolves around the adventures of a hobo, a runaway chimpanzee, and a six-year-old thought to be lost. The boy, played by Blackman, is actually trying to find Dinke, his chimp, who's chasing a tramp (played in a Chaplinesque manner by Goldin). Grandpa Cordell, assuming that Blackman has been kidnaped, soon has the police involved in the merry chase. Our happy ending sees Cordell, young Blackman, and the chimp all reunited at the police station. Director Jourdan has a talent for searching out geometric angles and patterns and creatively integrating them into the film.
