Zorki 1, Sable River Inn

My daughter at Doc's Sable River Inn, Freesoil Michigan. First roll of film run thru this Zorki. There is a problem with the shutter mechanism. If I shoot the camera "normally", it ignores the shutter speed setting and appears to default to the fastest speed (1/500). However, if I hold the camera upside down, all shutter speeds work correctly. I am going to have to crack in to this camera and see if I can figure out what is going on. Otherwise, this Zorki 1 works well and, cosmetically, is in excellent condition. Pleased with the results so far.
