5.0 out of 5 stars Marx Brothers Mayhem!, 20 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Marx Brothers Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
If you love the Marx Brothers you can hardly get better value for money than this. The eight movies come on 8 picture-disc single-sided discs, not those awful American flippers, so expect them to playable for many years to come. This set actually has 7 Marx Brothers films and 1 Groucho Marx film. It contains: The Coconuts, Horse Feathers, Duck Soup, Animal Crackers, Monkey Business, Desk Front, Love Happy (often called the worst Marx Brothers film, having never seen it before I loved this film), and A Girl In Every Port (Groucho Marx Only). Seven of the best Marx Brothers films plus an excellent, much unfairly criticised Groucho Marx film. And great value for money too. It's a shame the set with the other Marx Brothers films is so expensive.

You said : "It's a shame the set with the other Marx Brothers films is so expensive."
Well said sir!....
In May 2009, I purchased both Marx Brothers boxed sets together from http://amazon.co.uk. The total cost including shipping to Australia was £30.03, UK pounds. The eight movie boxed set currently under review here, cost me £13.98. The "other Marx Brothers" boxed set only cost me £10.98!!! Basically, a real amazon bargain. So it is absolutely disgusting to see the ludicrous prices that some money grabbing merchants are trying to procure from the sale of new and used copies of "the other" set. Actually, you are better off buying the US version of "the other" boxed set which although is also a bit pricey, is still selling for a good deal less than the UK version. The downsides however are that 1. The NTSC region 1 discs will only play in region free / multi-region DVD players and 2. You get a bonus movie which is also in the other eight movie set. So check out the US version of "the other" boxed set at http://amazon.co.uk. Alternatively, try amazon.com where amazon are currently still selling new copies of 'the other' set.

Actually double sided discs are great value 4 money. When u consider most of these films are only 75 minutes or less,that is not much on a dvd when they now can contain 3-4 hours per side. So 4 discs with 2 films each would have been better or 2 double sided discs with 2 films each side. Why have 1 blank side when u can have 2 full sides? Flip over the disc & it saves time,money & space! Now put that in your pipe & smoke it! :)
