(1931) dir Norman Z. McLeod w/The Marx Bros, Thelma Todd [77 min]
Pre-A Night At The Opera, the Marx Brothers stow away on a trans-Atlantic cruise ship and wind-up sandwiched between rival gangsters and in the middle of a kidnap plot – all the while trying desperately to avoid the ship’s crew. “Oh, engineer? Will you tell them to stop the boat from rocking, I’m going to have lunch.”
