ANIMAL CRACKERS
1930, Paramount, 97 min, USA, Dir: Victor Heerman

The Marx Bros.’ second film finds them running amok at a swanky Long Island estate where a priceless painting has been stolen. This invaluable record of their last Broadway show features Groucho’s immortal theme song, "Hooray for Captain Spaulding," the classic bridge game and dictating-a-letter routines, and delightful support from the legendary Lillian Roth, plus Louis Sorin, Robert Greig and, of course, Margaret Dumont.
