Stranger Says:

A priceless painting disappears during a lavish party for Captain Spaulding (Groucho Marx). Things get weird. The Marx Brothers’ second movie is admittedly pretty creaky at times, with a romantic subplot that you can practically feel slide off of the screen. But then the sustained lunacy hits, and everything is forgiven. While Duck Soup remains the Marx magnum opus, this isn’t far behind at all, with a dizzying array of verbal and physical gags, hilarious musical bits, and Groucho’s unceasing delight in playing off of Margaret Dumont’s brick-wall obliviousness. Even Zeppo gets a couple of classic moments, for Pete’s sake.
