Ollie and John are a long way from their home in Brooklyn when their truck breaks down. When they run into a fair, they decide to sell their only valuable possession. It's an elephant with the name Bunny, and Ollie has grown really attached to him. At the fair the 'ferocious' Nita Cordoba works and John falls in love with her, the feeling is mutual. Most employees of the fair are willing to buy Bunny, as the fair is in great commercial trouble and an elephant might just be the injection so barely needed. Owner Jose, however, has different ideas. He'd rather see the fair go down as that will be more benificial to him. Written by

"Machine Gun Mama", not at all what I had expected in regards for a title. In my opinion the also known as title "Tropical Fury", suits it much much better. In most factor's though, I found it to be quite hilarious. The plot itself was pretty good. Definitely, a one of it's kind, and as I had mention before in the summary for this film "bravo for Luis Alberni", he without a doubt stole the show. Really, he was a master at all he had done, film and in everyday life. Unfortunately, in return, Alberni - much to the dismay of being a character actor - had in most films been underrated, just as many other character actors had been within that era of film. Also, I find that without him in "Macine Gun Mama" the movie would not be nearly as good. Everyone in it although contributed, therefore deserve some slice of credit. Yet, the movie's #1 star should without a doubt be Alberni. Not Armida.
