5.0 out of 5 stars There ain't no Sanity Clause!, 13 Mar 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Marx Brothers: A Night At The Opera [VHS] (VHS Tape)
'A Night at the Opera' is my favourite Marx Brothers film - though I've only seen four so far, so I haven't come to a final decision! Chico, Harpo and Groucho star as Fiorello, Tomasso and Otis P. Driftwood respectively - three dodgy characters who team up with a failing young opera singer in order to help him win both fame on the stage and the hand of his sweetheart. The plot, as ever, is a mere excuse for the brothers to spend an hour or so just messing around. Groucho is Driftwood, nominally an aspiring social climber with the rich Mrs. Claypool (Margaret Dumont) in his sights (he quips "I saw Mrs Claypool first. Of course, her mother really saw her first but there's no point in bringing the Civil War into this..."), while Chico and Harpo play two Italian stowaways with nothing better to do than 'assist' Groucho's character. This film is really funny and contains far too many jokes to digest in one viewing. Also, it's worth noting that there's currently a two-film video available on Amazon, containing both this film and 'A Day at the Races' for roughly the same price - check it out.
