Monkey Business

Dir. Norman Z. McLeod

USA 1931 | Colour | 77 mins | Cert U | Comedy

Cast: Groucho Marx, Harpo Marx, Chico Marx

Daft one-liners and absurd slapstick manoeuvres abound in this first Marx Brothers screen original. The foursome get up to their comedy antics as stowaways on a cruise liner, annoying the other passengers who are beset by their typical lunacy. Blagging their way through customs, they go on to crash a snooty society party in Long Island and apprehend some gangland criminals along the way.
