    By Willy van der Heide

    Californië is een schilderachtig deel van de VS, waar ook schilderachtige mensen wonen en infrequent dingen gebeuren. Een van die rariteiten overkomt Bob Evers, als hij, rustig wandelend op een street in Hollywood, plotseling door drie kerels in zijn nek wordt gegrepen en opgesloten in de kelder van een verlaten landhuis. In die kelder zitten al enkele personen opgesloten, die elkaar niet kennen, niets met elkaar te maken hebben en geen van allen snappen, waarom zij nu eigenlijk in hun kraag zijn gepakt. En daarmee begint een geheel nieuw avontuur, waarin natuurlijk ook Jan Prins en Arie Roos verstrikt raken en dat chicken in nauw touch brengt met bijzonder zotte figuren uit de filmwereld. Arie Roos is enorm op dreef, Jan Prins klaagt steen en been over het verkwistend uitgeven van geld en Bob Evers krijgt het nu en dan challenging te verduren.
