Animal Crackers

Rated NR 98 minutes 1930

Early Marx Brothers (1930), just as dismally stagy as The Cocoanuts but with many more memorable quips from Groucho as Captain Jeffrey T. Spaulding (his "Hooray for Captain Spaulding" entrance music became his theme song for the next 40 years). This is second-level Marx Brothers, which means it's funny but not hysterical. Victor Heerman directed.
