Hammerman Ikon

Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Night at the Opera
Director: Leo McCarey
Cast: Groucho Marx, Harpo Marx, Chico Marx, Kitty Carlisle, Allan Jones, Margaret Dumont

The first Marx Brothers film without Zeppo is set in the world of opera where the trio attempt to help two young singers/lovers. There are some wonderfully funny moments, such as the scene in the crowded cabin, but a bit too much plot, romance and music compared to the earlier anarchic comedies.
