两个穷困潦倒的人密谋绑架小镇首富的儿子,不料却遇到一个“天才儿童”,无尽的噩梦从此开始……一百年前的小鬼当家,从《红酋长的赎金》中,让我们看孩子的淘气顽皮和怪招频出。

The Ransom of Red Chief is a 1910 short story by O. Henry. It follows two men who kidnap and attempt to ransom a wealthy Alabaman's son; eventually, the men are driven to distraction by the boy and end up having to pay the boy's father to take him back.

我和比尔想要弄一笔钱。我们看上了当地一个有地位的人,把他的独生子绑架在一个山洞里,可是那孩子一点都不害怕,还捉弄我们。比尔受不了,我们只好把他送回去,又付了钱,然后逃跑到很远很远的地方。

Two thieves, Bill and Sam, plot to kidnap the son of an important citizen named Ebenezer Dorset, demand a ransom of $2,000, quickly collect the payoff, and be on their way. However, once they actually kidnap the boy and make their way to a hideout in the nearby hills, their plan quickly begins to unravel. Their young captive, a malevolent, redheaded brat who calls himself Red Chief (real name: Johnny Dorset), actually enjoys his stay with his kidnappers, and thinks he is on a camping trip.

快点儿,比尔。咱们到了。

可是……火车没有停啊!

Come on, Bill. We're here.

But ... the train isn't stopping!
