6 classic movies, two duds,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Marx Brothers Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
The first of two box sets of Marx Brothers films, the other box is the films they made for MGM so this means you get their first 6 films up to Duck Soup (which bombed and the studio dropped them) and two late career duds that don't fit anywhere else... The first two films, Animal Crackers and Cocoanuts may seem a little stagey but that is because they are adaptations of their popular Broadway shows. Rounding out the box set is two films they made late in their careers, Love Happy sees the 3 Marx Brothers take on an exceptional bad script, not dreadful but uninspired and thin on the laughs, but A Girl In Every Port is truly bad and seems completely devoid of humour, I say that having got to about 11 minutes before I could take no more. Curiously these are the only two films where Groucho grew a real moustache, spooky huh?
