Storyline

A suspicious hunchback is spying through a scope on the UCLA campus from a tower which he makes his home out of, when his eye catches a beautiful girl. He lustfully keeps his eye on her until he sees her being violently pushed away while trying to stop a guy from beating up her boyfriend. This makes the hunchback mad and he makes himself known by swinging from a rope Tarzan style onto the campus and attacks the man who pushed the girl away. The hunchback is later taken into custody by campus officials and is later examined by the campus professors, Cathy, the beautiful girl, and Alex, her boyfriend. While on a ride back to the campus, the hunchback escapes the police car and is being chased by Alex, Cathy, and one of the professors riding along with them, Dr. Webster. He leads the trio to his tower and shows them the whole place. Dr. Webster then feels that it's best for him to stay there and he, along with Cathy, asks Alex to stay with the hunchback. After a long argument, Alex ... Written by Anonymous

This is one of those films that's so stupid, it's funny. It's a little slow going at first, but once you get into it, you realize that Allan Katz is a master at subtle physical schtick. His character is at once endearing and funny. This is the sort of film where you'll come away reciting lines for years to come. Unfortunately, almost no one else will know what you're talking about, because hardly anyone has seen this film. But that's okay, you can just keep it as a little joke for yourself, and the few others out who know.
