The Marx Brothers get mixed up with grand opera in their first MGM-produced epic and their first without Zeppo.
One of their best films, blessed with a big budget--used to reach epic anarchic heights.
Some scenes were tested on live audiences before inclusion, including the Groucho/Chico paper-tearing contract negotiation and the celebrated stateroom scene, in which the boys are joined in a small closet by two maids, the ship's engineer, his assistant, a manicurist, a young woman, a cleaning lady, and four food-laden waiters.
No tickets needed for this movie, either in the covered area or on the hill.
