An odd Hollywood exercise in old-world whimsy (1933), perpetrated by Rowland V. Lee. Loretta Young is an orphan girl who stays after hours at the city zoo; during her all-night vigil, she is protected by a mysterious free spirit who lives there among the animals (beefy, blond Gene Raymond). Clearly under the influence of Murnau's Sunrise (made for the same studio, Fox, years earlier), the film attempts a fablelike quality, although much of it is merely precious. The delicate, misty photography is by the great Lee Garmes. 85 min.
