Product description

Product Description

A collection of 4 classic Marx Brothers films. 'The Cocoanuts' (1929) sees the four Marx brothers - Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo - make their big screen debut with this adaptation of their Broadway hit. Hammer (Groucho) is the fast-talking owner of a Florida hotel, hoping to make a mint by persuading wealthy society matron Mrs Potter (Maragaret Dumont) and her daughter Polly to invest in the local land boom. He is aided and abetted by a pair of inept conmen (Chico and Harpo) and desk clerk Jamison (Zeppo), but the quartet become distracted from their task when they help Polly's sweetheart, Bob, prove his innocence after he is wrongfully accused of stealing Mrs Potter's jewels. The Marxes' first feature is hampered by poor sound quality and static camera-work, but includes the classic land auction and 'Why-a-duck?' scenes and a score by Irving Berlin. 'A Girl in Every Port' (1952) was Groucho Marx's second solo outing for RKO and his third feature without Chico and Harpo. Groucho and William Bendix play a couple of scheming sailors who spend most of their time in the ship's brig. Bendix receives a small inheritance and decides to spend it on a clapped-out racehorse. When Groucho learns that the animal has a much more successful twin, he and Bendix decide to swap the nags and clean up at the track. Also included are 'Room Service' (1938) also starring Lucille Ball and Ann Miller and 'Love Happy' (1949) featuring an aspiring starlet, Marilyn Monroe.
