Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
