Duck Soup: captures some of the Marx Brothers' zaniest routines and funniest quips, creating a laugh-out-loud spectacle of politics gone haywire. Backed by wealthy widow Mrs. Teasdale, Groucho becomes the leader of Freedonia, quickly frustrating his cabinet and offending the aggressive neighboring country to the point of war. Chico and Harpo, sent by the rival country, spy on Groucho and try to steal his battle plans, but when war does come, loyalties become muddled all around.

Animal Crackers: Often considered their best, this second Marx Brothers movie revolves around a stolen painting and the sprawling estate of a wealthy dowager who soon finds Chico, Zeppo, Harpo, and, especially, Groucho turning her life upsidedown. Groucho croons his famous "Hooray for Captain Spaulding" and delivers many of his most famous quips in this film based on a play by George S. Kaufman.

Horse Feathers: The Marx Brothers parody college life in this gag-filled, fast-paced comedy. The fast-talking new president of Huxley College needs to scrounge up some top-flight ringers for his football team, but ends up with a bootlegger and a mute dog catcher instead. More laughs than most comedies (and smart laughs at that) this script, coscripted by satirist SJ Perelman, is humour at its most clever.

Monkey Business: The madcap Marx Brothers stowaway on a luxury cruise ship in this fast-paced, laugh-filled farce. While they manage to elude capture by the ship's captain and crew by staging impromptu puppet shows and hiding in herring barrels, getting off the boat is another matter. Before long they're all impersonating Maurice Chevalier in order to disembark and begin their new careers as mob bodyguards.

These films are so funny. Really ought to be in any serious film collection.

some awesome one-liners in these from Chico & Groucho, not to mention Harpo's great physical, 'mute' comedy.



no sign of the mysterious 6th brother, Karl though.

I have been laughing at these films since I was a kid back in the 60's when they would be shown on tv. 40 years later they still make me laugh.
A great price for these funny films and a nicely packaged set but I would go the whole hog and get this collection:
