It`s schmaltz-true. But the `BEAUTIFUL DREAMER`/"Ladies and gentlemen - Mr. Joseph Young" episode and the burning orphanage rescue.....Joe still gets you. And the point of the whole tale IS no wild-born animal should be caged (and the movie don`t think much of so-call `modern civilization`, a viewpoint that still resonates.

This was an interesting movie for the time period, I had no idea that the 90's film of the same name was a remake. Unfortunately, thanks to the time period, what no doubt used to be normal is now just blatant animal cruelty, and had some pretty obvious racism to boot.
