A tour of the zoo is given considerable momentum as an irate keeper chases Jacky for teasing the animals. The camera catches good close-ups of the zoo’s polar bear, lion, giraffe, elephant, rhinoceros, camel, zebra and finally Jacky, in a cage labelled “Wild Boy.” Piano soundtrack, no dialogue. (Award: Rome)
