A Night at the Opera
Comedy • NR • 1935 • 1 hr 36 min
Some excellent dialogue, set-pieces, and slapstick comedy. One of the all time greats.
The humor still holds up extremely well.
All the Marx Brothers flicks can B enjoyed quite well, with Buster Keaton & Harold Lloyd movies on oldies weekends, no exception here!
When I invite a woman to dinner I expect her to look at my face. That's the price she has to pay.
These old Marx brothers shorts just like Abbott and Costello, and Laurel and Hardy, and the stooges shorts are still funny.
Though anarchy is slightly tamed to favor more of a plot than most Marx movies, still incredibly entertaining. Aviators & sanity clause ftw.
A special thank you to my high school English teacher for showing this to me.
A really cute movie with a happy ending
My favorite Marx Brothers film—a comedy classic!
