Movie Summary

The zany Marx Brothers turn an operatic performance into chaos in their efforts to promote their protégé's romance with the leading lady. Considered by many to be the Brothers' finest big budget adventure. Co-starring Marxian regular Margaret Dumont ("Coconuts") and Allan Jones ("Show Boat"). A fun-filled musical romp. Inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry and recently selected by the prestigious American Film Institute as one of the top 400 American films of all time.
