Professor Peter Boyd's engagement to the Dean's daughter is upset by the revelation that his father was a habitual convict. To prove the Dean's genetic theory of inherited traits as wrong, Boyd starts a 'secret' experiment. He borrows the science department's chimpanzee with the goal of showing that it is one's environment that affects your reaction to right and wrong.Written by

The popular Ramones song Bonzo Goes To Bitburg is written about Ronald Reagan and refers to Reagan as Bonzo because of the controversy over putting a wreath on a Nazi graveyard in Bitburg. The reason why is because people found it to be unacceptable for a United States president to show any remorse for the Nazis. See more »
When Bonzo is passed through the window, he has a skirt on that soon disappears. See more »
I found this to be a rather cute comedy, which has gotten a bit of a strange reputation owing to the fact that the "Gipper" plays an unusual role. But Reagan does play comedy well (it's unfortunate that he didn't make more comedies in his day), and Walter Slezak is amusing in a nice, if a bit stereotypical kind of part as his German professor/mentor.
