  • Zoo in Budapest

    1933. USA. Directed by Rowland V. Lee. Cinematography by Lee Garmes. With Loretta Young, Gene Raymond, O. P. Heggie, Wally Albright, Paul Fix. A year after working with Sternberg and Dietrich on Shanghai Express, Garmes made this beautifully photographed animal-lovers delight at Fox. The film shows Sternberg’s romantic influence and the pervasiveness of F. W. Murnau’s visual legacy at Fox. Former stockbroker Lee (director of Fu Manchu and Dumas potboilers, as well as Son of Frankenstein) has been somewhat overlooked by film historians, but he had a strong visual sense, as evidenced here and in the following year’s whimsical I Am Suzanne. 94 min.

In the Film exhibition The Aesthetics of Shadow, Part 2: Europe and America
