This film introduced Groucho's most famous character Captain Spaulding whose song became the theme of his 'You Bet Your Life' TV program.

The Marx Brothers' second film is an adaptation of their Broadway hit. Mrs Rittenhouse (Margaret Dumont) is throwing a high society party, at which African explorer Jeffrey T. Spaulding (Groucho Marx) is the guest of honour. When a valuable painting is stolen from the house, Spaulding teams up with Italian musician Emanual Ravelli (Chico Marx) and the eccentric Professor (Harpo Marx) to track down the thieves - in between trading insults with their fellow guests and generally creating mayhem!
