1930. USA. Directed by Victor Heerman. From the play by George S. Kaufman, Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby, Morrie Ryskind. With the four Marx Brothers. A bogus African explorer and his zany entourage descend on Long Island's outrageously vulgar Rittenhouse home. Paramount's highly theatrical film version offers the Marx Brothers as Broadway celebrities, not Hollywood stars. 97 min.
