Cast & Crew
George K. Arthur
Oscar Thrust, trainer of a gorilla billed as "Bimbo, the Man-Eating Ape," takes a disliking to Francis Byrd. Fired from his job as a newspaper reporter, Byrd wants to join the circus to be near La Belle, a trapeze artist. Thrust fouls all of Byrd's attempts to prove himself worthy of the circus, causing La Belle, the daughter of circus-owner Magoo, to believe that Byrd is a coward. Finally, practical joker Thrust puts Bimbo in Byrd's berth on the train. Bimbo gets loose and chases La Belle to the train roof, frightens the engineer into jumping off, speeds up the train, and breaks the whistle. Francis comes to the rescue, stops the train from ramming a freight ahead, and saves everyone from sure destruction. Bimbo gives Thrust a good thrashing.
