A Night at the Opera

(Sam Wood, 1935)

“And now, on with the opera. Let joy be unconfined. Let there be dancing in the streets, drinking in the saloons, and necking in the parlor.”—Otis B. Driftwood (Groucho Marx)

Grouch, Chico, and Harpo Marx tackle high society in one of the greatest of all American comedies. As always, plot takes a backseat to the brothers’ nonstop puns and visual gags including the famous crowded stateroom scene. Also with Kitty Carlisle and Margaret Dumont. (96 mins., DCP)
