Monkey Business

It is incredible how well the humour works, seventy seven years after it was made. The physical comedy is unrivalled, and the dialogue razor sharp. Groucho is on top form, and his interchanges with Chico side-splitting.

The only disappointment is that they had to leave the ship, I could have watched them run from the crew for at least another hour! The support, apart from a few stand outs such as Thelma Todd, don't really turn up; but that just seems to let the brothers enjoy themselves even more - "Is it true you're getting a divorce as soon as your husband recovers his eyesight?"
