John Baxter is a freewheeling trader of goods in Africa with a pet chimpanzee and one dream: to save enough money to buy a gas station in Detroit. Madeleine Cooper is the lady of mystery he runs into as she flees from Hunter.



Italian film critic Marco Giusti calls the film a "cute little movie" (Italian: "filmetto carino"), the best being Ursula Andress dressed as dirty sister.[1]
