Last Wednesday, did you steal a woman's fur?
What made you do it?
People shouldn't kill animals... and wear their furs.
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?
No. I burned it.

It will take more than a little suspension of disbelief to buy the core fantasy: that fast talking Gene Raymond has lived his entire life inside the Budapest Zoo, ditto the idea that gorgeous Loretta Young is a poor orphan. But no matter, for the film is a marvelous and unusual piece of work, seldom seen and well worth finding. In fact, the sets alone make it a must see. As a side note, Raymond's character may be one of the sound era's first animal rights activists...I recall no previous studio film taking a stand against fur (though don't get your hopes up--the thrilling finale, featuring lions and elephants on the loose, surely traumatized the animals involved).
