John (Wallace Ford) & Ole (El Brendel) are stranded somewhere in Mexico with an Elephant, & since the animal is too big to get rid of just like that, they decide to sell it to Alberto Cordoba's (Julian Rivero) carnival, where Ignacio (Luis Alberni), the owner of the flea circus, has just lost his flea ... & he's more than happy to train a bigger animal this time ...

But since Cordoba can't pay right away, He invites John & Ole to stay for afew days ... & John soon falls for Cordoba's daughter Nita (Armida), a temperamental girl that, when ienraged even uses a machinegun to make her point.

The idea of using the elephant to promote the carnival seems great, only gangster José (Jack LaRue) seems to object as Cordomba owes him money but José is rather content with collecting the interest Cordoba pays him - & will pay him for a long time if he cannot pay up. But José's attempts to get rid of the elephant fail, so he tries it the legal way ... which might be a good idea as it seems that John & Ole are wanted for quite a few crimes, polygamy among them.

In the end though, an unexpected witness (Ariel Heath) for the polygamy charges shows up & identifies José & not John as her husband. & at long last, John & Ole (who has found Ignacio's flea & decides to keep it) agree to stay with the carnival.


A comedy that sounds & plays a little like the Bob Hope-Bing Crosby-Road-movies, & has a funny, even bizarre concept to it (2 guys and an elephant stranded in Mexico). However, the film does have one major problem ... it's not funny (even if it tries).

As a failed attempt to bring a bizarre story full of wacky characters on a tiny budget to the screen, the film is somehow endearing again though.
