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.

My friends mother was in this movie. She was one of the other orphans that was standing next to Loretta Young in front of the lion cage. Her name was not on the credits but I watched it with my friend and he pointed out his mother to me whenever she appeared. She had several scenes. The movie was a very pleasant story about the love between the animals and the caretaker. Loretta Young was very gorgeous, as she was all of her life. I really enjoyed the way the animals were taken care of in this film, and the scenery was very picturesque. I really enjoyed the "lectures" on the animals that the orphanage director gave as she was leading the orphan girls through the zoo.
