Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Falling for pretty Marjorie Brand (Constance Howard), young man-about-town Daniel Hastings (Douglas MacLean) follows her home, only to discover that Marjorie is about to embark with her professor father (George C. Pearce) on a hunting expedition to Africa. Undaunted, Daniel pursues the girl halfway around the world, finally catching up with her in the Dark Continent. Hoping to impress Marjorie, Daniel makes a bet with a hunter that he capture a lion and bring it back alive. With the help of his rotund chum Dick (Walter Hiers), Daniel boldly heads into lion country -- but only when he comes face to face with one of the huge beasts does he begin to ponder the wisdom of his wager. The 1947 Three Stooges comedy Hold That Lion is not a remake.
