Hook a Crook is a 1955 film featuring Joe Besser.


A gorilla escapes from the zoo and walks the city rooftops, goes into Mrs. Van Sickle's house, and steals her diamond necklace. Wide awake detective agency investigators Besser and Hawthrone respond to her call for help, and corner the suspect to an antique dealer's room in the same place. Mistaking it for a crook in disguise, the boys confront the "Chimney- pansy", just as the two antique thieves enter the scene.
