Murders in the Zoo

Director Eddie Sutherland got his start working for Chaplin and later directed such comic luminaries as Laurel and Hardy, Burns and Allen, and W.C. Fields, and he's clearly out of his element with this pallid chiller, released by Paramount in 1933. Lionel Atwill, who enjoyed a solid movie career playing malevolent men of learning, is a big-game hunter and zoo benefactor who'll do anything to keep other guys away from his pretty wife; Charlie Ruggles provides comic relief as the zoo's cowardly press agent, and Randolph Scott, in one of his early romantic leads, is the zoologist who suspects Atwill of foul play. 64 min.
