The Creator/MarxBrothers' fifth film, and held by many to be their best (in tough competition with ''ANightAtTheOpera'' for that title). Released in 1933, it was also their final film for [[Creator/{{Paramount}} Paramount Pictures]]. It was one of the first films to openly mock the rising fascism in Europe.

* ItWontTurnOff: At Mrs. Teasdale's manor, Pinky mistakes a safe for a radio, which plays a ''very'' loud and energetic rendition of "Stars And Stripes Forever". He tries to muffle the radio with pillows, to no effect. He then throws it on the floor and smashes it to pieces; again, the radio continues to play. Pinky has to settle for throwing what's left of the radio out the window.

* RapidFireComedyRapidFireComedy: And ''how!'' After the short introduction it's hard to find a single moment in the film that's devoid of gags. This was one of the group's trademarks, of course.
