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

Opening card: Ladies and Gentlemen, any similarity between this tale and a sensible thought is purely co-incidental-- or should we say accidental. It could never happen in a million years to anybody else but it did to our heroes, who came from a strange and far away place-- Brooklyn. Looking not at the beauty that is Mexico with its snow tipped Sierras, nor the lush verdant tropics, its gaiety, its color, its love, they have been drawn across the length and breadth of this exotic country with its strains of soft guitars -- by one desire -- to deliver an...

A couple of of New Yorkers wind up in Mexico with an elephant and hold on.. Let's back up here. Why did they wind up in Mexico? And why on earth do they have an elephant? These questions are established at the very beginning of this mess of a movie, which details the two winding up in a Mexican carnival trying to sell of the animal to the fair owners, but the fair owners are wondering if they can afford the elephant. Soon, one of the two is falling in love with the daughter of the fair owner, but he might have some skeletons in the closet that she doesn't know about. Fairly ridiculous premise, badly badly titled, somewhat stereotypical characters, cheesy songs they don't bother to get into til the final 10 minutes of the movie, and a lame LAME ending that somehow conveniently wraps the plot up by bringing in characters out of nowhere just to get everything finished. Pretty bad.. Avoid.
