Rita Hayworth plays a woman who is having an affair with a much younger man. Half way through the picture her wheelchair bound husband catches them and he is accidentally killed.
THE NAKED ZOO comes from director William Grefe who is best remembered for horror films like DEATH CURSE OF TARTU and MAKO: THE JAWS OF DEATH. This film here is a drama and there's really only about five minutes worth of a story and then a bunch of other scenes that add up to nothing. In fact, I'm really not certain what this film is about because of the lack of any real story and more times than not it just seems a bunch of scenes were shot for no reason.
It almost seems like they were able to get Hayworth so they shot a bunch of scenes with her and then decided what to build around it. The surrounding scenes include a few touches of nudity as well as a topless woman with a vibrator. Other stuff includes party scenes but none of these add up to anything other than running the time up. The film is poorly edited, makes very little sense and on a technical level there's certainly nothing impressive here.
THE NAKED ZOO would turn out to be one of the last films that Hayworth did and like many Golden Era stars, it's too bad she had to appear in such an awful movie at this point in her life.
