This review is from: Go West [1940] (DVD)
You know what to expect from a Marx brothers film and it doesn't disappoint. Not as full on zany as Duck Soup, but still plenty as daft. I hadn't even heard of it til recently so i expected it to be below par. Far from it. I enjoyed it much more than i expected.

Being the Marx brothers, you have surely one of the cleverest bunch of clowns of all time. Slick variety style routines, always a lot of fun. The added element to this movie were the more easy going and gentle moments. Eg - Harpo playing a weaver's loom (harp) alongside the flute of the Native Americans. Beautiful music. After all that reckless slapstick, those moments felt really quite touching.

Not a classic by critic's standards but a very sweet film in it's own right. Plus the humour is so alive, so care free and in a world of it's own that it hasn't really dated. I much preferred this to Laurel and Hardy's 'Way out west' which apart from the classic musical 'Lonesome pine' scene, seems a little slow and laboured when compared to this.

Fresh, warm hearted and a definitely a must see for Harpo fans.

A lesser known Marx Brothers film but still well worth watching. No, it is not as good as Duck Soup or A Day At the Races (so see them first) and, yes, it does look as if it was filmed on a vacant lot from another film but it still has plenty of laughs and routines to remember. Even a less good Marx Brothers beats most of the competition
