|THE STORY: In the household
of Adonis Samaritan (Tom
Wright), cab driver and lover of mankind, all homeless
creatures, dogs, lame ducks and people—are welcome, much to the
distress of daughter Alicia
who wishes she didn't have to be embarrassed at the thought of
inviting her elegant boyfriend, Milton, to dinner. But plans are
made, only to be jeopardized by the arrival of still another
"stray," a self-proclaimed folk singer named Alvin
whom Adonis brings home to join "Cousin" Lu
"Uncle" Nemo (Robert
Ekker), and the assorted animals quartered in the cellar.
Despite the best intentions of Adonis and his wife, Mina
to have things go smoothly, they go, as luck would have it,
quite the opposite, and the complications multiply hilariously.
In the end Milton (who never does show up) is forgotten about in
the turmoil while Alvin (who shows up better than expected)
proves that love will find a way—and, what is more important,
that the wild and wonderful lifestyle of the Samaritans has
found a new champion to keep it spinning along merrily for many
years to come.
