Notes from description:
Open and Shut Case, Rochester, N.Y.

Rex (right) seems quite bored by his sister Rexanne as she tells about seeing cousin Leo in a movie about ancient Rome. "Here we are, cooped up in a cage in Seneca Park Zoo in Rochester, N.Y., while our relatives play in the movies and perform in the circus and modelfor advertisements and everything else exciting. We should be ashamed that we've done so little. This is a heck of a life for monarchs of the Jungle !" Rex replies with a wide yawn.
