Marx Brothers Boxset DVD

| DVD

Animal Crackers Animal Crackers is a classic of screen history and as uproariously funny today as it was when it was released. This film Introduced Groucho's Africa lecture (one morning I shot an elephant in my pyjamas. How he got into my pyjamas, I don't know.) and the card game which Harpo and Chico play with the wealthy society woman Mrs Rittenhouse. Monkey Business Harpo, Chico, Groucho and Zeppo, head for high seas hilarity in this classic film comedy. While hiding from the authorities on a luxury liner the quartet of stowaways become bodyguards to rival gangsters,... with the usual hilarious results. And naturally no woman can resist a shipboard romance with the wily, quick-witted Groucho. Horse feathers The quintessential Marx Brothers comedy. Groucho, Harpo, Chico and yes, Zeppo, are at their manic peak in this uproariously anarchic parody of college life. As the fun loving president of Huxley college, Groucho tries to keep the student body in line with hilarious results! Horse Feathers contains some of the greatest sequences in movie comedy history. Duck Soup A pointed political satire, Duck Soup is the Marx Brothers' funniest and most insane film. The film contains many of the Brothers most famous sequences including a final battle episode that has been copied by everyone from Woody Allen to Mad Magazine. [show more]

Collection of four classic Marx Brothers films. In 'Animal Crackers' (1930), 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. 'Monkey Business' (1931) features the brothers as stowaways aboard a luxury ocean liner. While Groucho, Chico and Harpo create mayhem attempting to escape the clutches of the captain and crew, Zeppo embarks on a romance with Mary Helton (Ruth Hall) - daughter of retired gangster Joe Helton (Rockcliffe Fellowes). When rival gang leader Alky Briggs (Harry Woods) hatches a plot to kidnap Mary and hold her to ransom, it is up to the boys to save the day. In 'Horse Feathers' (1932), the new president of Huxley College, Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff (Groucho) sets about attending to important school business; namely, winning the school their first football game since 1888. On the advice of his son Frank (Zeppo), he enters a local speakeasy, intending to bribe a couple of professional players to make the college team. What he ends up with instead are inept dog catcher Pinky (Harpo) and ice delivery man Baravelli (Chico). However, the duo prove invaluable when Wagstaff becomes romantically involved with the scheming Connie Bailey (Thelma Todd), a college widow who is secretly in league with Huxley's chief rivals, Darwin. Finally, in 'Duck Soup' (1933), Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho) is appointed president of Freedonia under the patronage of the wealthy Mrs Teasdale (Dumont) and sets about starting a war with neighbouring Sylvania. To this end he trades insults with Sylvanian ambassador Trentino (Louis Calhern), unaware that Trentino's spies Chicolini (Chico) and Pinky (Harpo) are already working to bring down Freedonia from within.
