1935. Dir. Sam Wood. Groucho Marx, Chico Marx, Harpo Marx, Kitty Carlisle, Margaret Dumont. 96m. bw.

"Two beautifully stuffed American targets - grand opera and high society - are left dismantled, flapping like scarecrows. (If you ever could listen to Il Trovatore with a straight face, you can never do so again.)...This comedy has its classic sequence: the stateroom scene, which is widely regarded as the funniest five minutes in screen history. It will sustain you through the dreadful duets."
(Pauline Kael)
