A collection of 8 classic Marx Brothers films. 'The Cocoanuts' (1929) sees the four Marx brothers - Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo - make their big screen debut with this adaptation of their Broadway hit; 'Animal Crackers' (1930) also stars Margaret Dumont; 'Monkey Business' (1931) was their first original screenplay and features them as stowaways aboard a luxury ocean liner; 'Horse Feathers' (1932) sees them creating havoc on the campus of a high school college; 'Duck Soup' (1933) is a zany political satire, which so offended Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini that the film was banned in Italy; 'Room Service' (1938) also starred Lucille Ball and Ann Miller; 'Love Happy' (1949) featured an aspiring starlet, Marilyn Monroe; and 'A Girl in Every Port' (1952) was Groucho Marx's second solo outing for RKO and his third feature without Chico and Harpo.
