4.0 out of 5 stars
Why no A Night At The Opera, A Day At The Races, et al..., 5 Dec. 2003
The 4 films in this box set (i.e. Animal Crackers, Monkey Business, Horse Feathers and Duck Soup) were all Paramount releases. The first Marx Brothers' film 'Cocoanuts' was also a Paramount release and is available on DVD but currently only in region 1 format. The following Marx Brothers outings were released by different companies as follows:
* A Night At The Opera, A Day At The Races, At The Circus, Go West & The Big Store by MGM
* Room Service by RKO
* A Night In Casablanca and Love Happy by United Artists.
This explains why A Night At The Opera and others are not included in this particular collection. However, it doesn't explain why the other companies haven't got their collective fingers out and provided us fans with the rest of the Marx Brothers' comic output. Come on guys, there's a market out there for this stuff!
