A Night At The Opera (1935) is pure Marx Brothers hilarity

Flixster - Share Movies

The Marx Brothers in top form as they take on high society trying to get two opera singers into the biz. The wisecracks and antics of the boys are offset by the occasional song and dance, but the film still flows pretty good. Groucho rips off one liners faster than you can blink your eyes. The famous scene where they pack like 30 people into their stateroom aboard a ship is classic. One of their last really good films.
Otis B. Driftwood: "You're willing to pay him a thousand dollars a night just for singing? Why, you can get a phonograph record of Minnie the Moocher for 75 cents. And for a buck and a quarter, you can get Minnie".

Kitty Carlisle is a riot as Rosa and the Marx Bros. are their usual screwy selves.
