Aero Theatre presents a Marx Brothers double feature of the following films:
A NIGHT AT THE OPERA:
The Marx Brothers’ first film for MGM – also their first without Zeppo and their biggest box office hit – finds them in the mix with a couple of beleaguered opera-singer pals who are having career trouble. Enjoy the stateroom scene, the contract routine and tons of great one-liners. And remember: “There ain’t no sanity clause!” Numerous writers (many uncredited) include George S. Kaufman and even Buster Keaton. With Kitty Carlisle, Allan Jones, Sig
Ruman and Margaret Dumont.
MONKEY BUSINESS:
The Marx Brothers’ first original screenplay – by S.J. Perelman and an uncredited Ben Hecht, among others – is perhaps their most bizarre (and the only one in which they have no character names). They’re stowaways on an ocean liner, wreaking havoc and getting mixed up with rival gangsters as well as Thelma Todd. Includes the famous scene where all four try to get through customs by pretending to be Maurice Chevalier.
