Vernon Praiseworthy is a clumsy but lovable dope who stands to inherit his uncle's fortune. The condition is that he travel the rails as a penniless hobo just as his uncle did in the dark days of the depression. That seems simple enough until he gets involved in a dog-napping plot. Written by
Tim Conway is one of my favorite comics and this seemed like an ideal vehicle for him: playing a goof-up who finds out he is heir to a fortune but must prove his resourcefulness by becoming a hobo for a short time. It's too bad that they couldn't have focused on that as the main plot. The makers chose to throw in a gang of crooks who kidnap a valuable dog and then have Conway and the dog that's been sent along with him to keep him out of trouble, unknowingly join up with the crooks. The film generates few laughs and no one seems to be having much fun. The children's book which came out based on this film was way more enjoyable. If you like Conway, you might get through this but his TV show appearances are a lot funnier.
