Murders in the Zoo

Of course with a boyfriend who works in the zoo industry this movie was a must-see.   I recommend it if you don’t get queasy with animal endangerment.  But hey, this movie is from 1933, not really the peak time for animal rights.  But it WAS peak time for amazing fashion!!!  Now this is a VHS tape and I took photos of the TV with my camera, so the quality of these images aren’t great, but hopefully you get an idea of what I was oooing and ahhing over.

Of course the movie starts as any should with zoos, in an Eastern land where they’re stealing wildlife to bring back to America. The outfit of choice: jodhpurs, riding boots and a crisp white shirt.

That’s a fur trimmed capelet, folks.

Yep, she’s holding milk bottles near her boobs.  She was feeding baby bears who were chained in their exhibit (I warned you about this, guys).

If that guy could put his wife in a box that said HANDS OFF he probably would.   (That guy is a jealous man and the BAD guy!)   I won’t spoil the movie though. You should really just see it.  Or read this review.

I couldn’t get a good shot, but get a load of how cute her outfit is with the button down skirt, tie at the collar.   The capelets and collars in this movie were killing me.  But that wasn’t the only killing going on.  Dun dun dun!!
