(1930) dir Victor Heerman w/The Marx Bros, Margaret Dumont, Lillian Roth [97 min]

“One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don’t know.” Groucho is Capt. Spaulding, the African explorer, who causes mayhem when a painting is stolen during a party given in his honor. A musical-comedy-romance-mystery mash-up in true Marx Brothers’ style, with Groucho’s surreal zingers, Chico’s obstinate ‘Italian’ strangeness, and Harpo’s oddball dichotomy of magical harp playing and insane antics, all in rare form.
