MONKEY BUSINESS

by Norman Z. McLeod
 

kanalPresented by Eric Van

Okay, it's just a comedy... or... Well, for 1931, it's a darned great sound film. This pre-Code comedy is the third of the Marx Brothers' released movies, and the first with an original screenplay rather than an adaptation of one of their Broadway shows. The film also features Thelma Todd, Harry Woods and Ruth Hall. It is directed by Norman McLeod with screenplay by S. J. Perelman and Will B. Johnstone.

(1931) While stowing away on a ship to America, the boys get involuntarily pressed into service as toughs for a pair of feuding gangsters while trying desparately to evade the ship's crew. After arriving stateside, one of the gangsters kidnaps the other's daughter - and it's up to our unlikely heroes to save the day.
