Description & Features+

"A Night at the Opera" - Arts patron Mrs. Claypool intends to pay pompous opera star Lassparri $1,000 per performance. Hey, maybe that's why they call it grand opera! Grand comedy, too, as Groucho, Chico and Harpo cram a ship's stateroom and more than wall-to-wall gags, one-liners, musical riffs and two hard-boiled eggs - all while skewering Lassparri's schemes and helping two young hopefuls get a break. "A Day at the Races" - Doctor Hugo Hackenbush, Tony, and Stuffy try and save Judy's farm by winning a big race with her horse. There are a few problems. Hackenbush runs a high priced clinic for the wealthy who don't know he has his degree in Veterinary Medicine. "A Night in Casablanca" - Marx Brothers comedy has them ferret out Nazi spies in a Casablanca hotel. In "Room Service", a cash-strapped theatrical troupe reasons no one would bounce a sick man from a hotel room. And that leads to a diagnosis of crazy comedy full of feigned illness, fake suicides, a bogus physician and more Marxist doctorin'. The 3-ring circus that is Groucho, Chico and Harpo provides big-top bedlam in "At the Circus". Groucho and Chico work a badge skit, Chico and Harpo scour a strongman's bedroom for evidence, Groucho extols Lydia the Tattooed Lady, and logic, like the orchestra at the film's conclusion, is cut adrift and out to sea. You can learn a lot from Lydia. The Marxmen "Go West" to where the sun always shines, the fun never sets and where they outwit a land grabber. Highlights include the $1 scam, the stagecoach ride, Chico and Harpo bellying up to the bar and the train-chase finale. What fools these mortals be and what fuels they need. The boys chop up passenger cars to get wood to stoke the locomotive. They go east in "The Big Store", becoming detectives-cum-bodyguards for a department store. Crime is afoot in the store or, if in the Fabrics Department, by the yard. Still, our sleuths don't have a clue except in laughing matters. Chico and Harpo share a piano keyboard, beds disappear into walls, roller skates provide in-store mobility and Groucho warbles "Sing While You Sell." Sold.
