Quotes

Dr. Grunbaum: Last Wednesday, did you steal a woman's fur?
Zani: Yes, sir.
Dr. Grunbaum: What made you do it?
Zani: People shouldn't kill animals... and wear their furs.
Dr. Grunbaum: Unfortunately, there's not a law against that... but there is a law against stealing. What makes you steal things? Did you sell the fur?
Zani: No. I burned it.

Zoo in Budapest (1933)

*** (out of 4)

A young man (Gene Raymond) who's best friends are the animals in the zoo falls in love with a runaway orphan (Loretta Young). This is a nice romantic drama that has a lot of wonderful footage shot inside the famous Budapest zoo. All the stuff dealing with the animals is very nice and the ending is full of wonderful suspense as the animals escape from their cages and start a riot. Young is beautiful and very good as usual but there's very little chemistry with Raymond who is quite dull in the film. O.P. Heggie, the hermit in The Bride of Frankenstein plays the main doctor at the zoo. Directed by Rowland V. Lee who's best known for Son of Frankenstein and Tower of London.
