The big top is the venue for this inspired, anarchic comedy from the Marx brothers. A circus owner is in danger of losing his whole business because of a $10,000 debt. To the rescue comes a lawyer called J Cheever Loophole (Groucho). However, he manages to bungle the case and matters go from bad to worse until Loophole discovers that his client has a rich aunt. This just leads to more confusion, however, when the downtown circus clashes with New York high society.
