Under the loose but capable direction of Norman Z. McLeod, the Marxes leap from one lunatic set piece to the next. Wagstaff talks over, below and around everyone he meets.

Swordfish! "Everyone Says I Love You!" One of the funniest of the early Marx films; a crazy quilt of puns and gags.

This 1932 release was the first Marx film to take on the Depression, and the brothers manage to satirize everything from education to prostitution and bootlegging.

The grandfather in spirit and fact of both Tex Avery and Billy Wilder.
