(1931, Norman Z. McLeod) “You call this a party? The beer is warm and the women are cold!” The Four Marx Brothers – Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and Zeppo – stow away on a Deco ocean liner, chase blondes (including peerless foil Thelma Todd), catch crooks, and imitate Maurice Chevalier, in the team’s first original screenplay. DCP restoration. Approx. 77 mins.
“A hymn to anarchy and whole-hearted revolt.”
– Antonin Artaud
