Ambrose C. Park (Red Skelton), left on a park bench as an infant with an impulsive need to find his parents, is an assistant to a diamond cutter. Shyster lawyer Remlick (James Whitmore), in a strategy to get a fabulous uncut diamond through Ambrose, arranges for Emmily Drummon (Dorothy Stickney), Duke Fargoh (George Mathews) and Maggie Drummon (Cara Williams)to pose as Ambrose's long-lost parents and sister. The diamond, through many comic situations, is acquired and the gang is going to have Ambrose cut the diamond, and relieve him of the two stones and also his parental illusions at the same time. But Maggie, who has no taste for the deception, tips Ambrose off and a wild chase ensues. At the end, Ambrose is very happy as he can now marry his "sister." Written by

This Film is for those who are 10 and older. I was hoping for a funnier Red Skelton film. Not to say that the film is not comical, I was just a little disappointed that it wasn't funnier. I really like Red Skelton and grew up watching his TV show. My dad turned it on when it was on TV and we watched it together. Red Skelton has a wonderful warm sense of humor that loving hearts will find enjoyable. His humor is never mean. The film is short and gets right to the point, which I like. The Great Diamond Robbery substitutes humor for suspense. Grab your popcorn bowls and enjoy the film. Because of its length, you will have the time for another film. I give this film four thumbs up.
