In a laudable endeavor to prove

MacLean joins what he mistakenly
believes is a "cat" hunting expe
dition. When he discovers that
the "cats" are not the familiar
and harmless household pets but
wild, man-eating lions, it is too
late to withdraw.
As matters turn out. instead of
MacLean hunting the lions, the
lions hunt MacLean. The results
are Just as funny and exciting as
one would imagine. In the end,
the comedian, has the last laugh
on the animals, for he succeeds in
capturing a live lion, though in a
decidedly unorthodox manner.
The lion hunt is merely the cli
max of a long series of mirth-pro
voking adventures, which begin
in New York when MacLean falls
in love with a charming blonde.
Unfortunately, ' the girl starts a
round-the-world trip before he
can propose, but he manages to
catch up with her in Africa. There
after the complications pile up
with amazing rapidity, attaining
hilarious- and cyclonic proportions
during the lion hunting episodes.
