The Marx Brothers bring their inimitable brand of slapstick lunacy to this, perhaps their most popular film. Famed explorer Captain Spaulding (Groucho) is being feted at an exclusive house party when a valuable painting goes missing. Chico, Harpo and Zeppo are on hand to help find it, and naturally, chaos ensues. This has some of the Brothers' most famous routines, and Groucho's on top form as the big game hunter: "One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don't know."
Leaders are advised to watch this film before showing it to classes as the opening contains some terms modern audiences may find offensive or culturally insensitive.
