Film Review

In this film, only remembered because it stars a president, Ronald Regan as a teacher must disprove the theory of his girlfriends father that people are either born bad or born good. so in order to disprove this theory Ronnie takes a chimp under his wing to teach it right and wrong "To Do Good Without Hope Of Reward!

He gets the idea to bring a chimp into his home and try to teach him right from wrong BUT because he is just a single man, he hires a woman (Diana Lynn) to pose as the mommy and he becomes Bonzo’s surrogate dad. It’s actually quite well-made fluff, and the…
