Synopsis:
The Marx Brothers - Chico, Groucho, Harpo and Zeppo - remain one of the most recognisable comedy teams to hit the silver screen, ranking alongside the likes of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy, the brothers keep audiences laughing to this day. 'Monkey Business' sees the Marx clan stowed away on a ship, while Groucho, Harpo and Chico cause calamity evading the ships crew Zeppo embarks on a love affair with the daughter of a mobster. In their penultimate film at Paramount, 'Horse Feathers', the head of Huxley University, Quincey Adams Wagstaff (Groucho) strives to to hire professional football players to help his son's (Zeppo) football team win their first ever game.
The Paramount era represents the Marx Brothers at their absolute finest, retaining all of the energy and controlled chaos of their stage shows. Plots are unimportant, it's the gags, set-pieces and one-liners that matter!
