Movie Info

Jackie (Margaret Brooks) is presented an African bush baby as a lovely parting gift from Tembo (Louis Gossett Jr.). She tries to board an outbound ship with her father and the annoying, squalling animal. Jackie jumps ship to plant the animal in a nearby tree, but the ship takes off and leaves her behind. She convinces the houseboy Tembo to search for a friend of her fathers, dragging him across the continent in her search. Tembo becomes a wanted man when a vicious ivory trader tells the police he has kidnapped Jackie. Soon the trader and the police hunt for Tembo, and the authorities would rather have him captured dead than alive to avoid political embarrassment. The duo must dodge the police, the ivory hunter and cannibals in this jungle adventure. Donald Huston and Laurence Naismith add to the feature with their portrayals of eccentric Englishmen. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
