Jack Corcoran thought his father had died before he was born while saving a child from drowning. He wasn't dead, though, at least not until last month. It turns out his father was a clown, literally, and he left a hefty inheritance. An 8,000 pound elephant named Vera (his mother's name). Intent on getting rid of the destructive yet intelligent animal, he finds himself struck between two women over the phone, one a zoologist wanting to free Vera and the other wanting to put Vera into show biz. As he treks across the country with disaster at every turn, headed for Hollywood, he realizes how useful Vera is but is that worth more than thousands of dollars?
