Lionel Atwill in a plumb role as a director of a zoo who's insanely jealous of his wife, to the point to having his "competition" murdered by the animals in the zoo. He is a real SOB in this film!
I highly recommend it! The only "downside" of it is Charlie Ruggles' "drunk" routine, which gets extremely tedious in parts. (One wishes that Atwill would've done HIM in, and early on in the picture!).
Has the same "tenseness" as the original "Most Dangerous Game".
