AFS Precode Treasures: The Marx Bros 'The Cocoanuts' in 35mm

The Marx Brothers’ first feature preserves the anarchic interplay of their stage shows, as well as the some of the more risque elements.

For years, Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo Marx had been traveling the vaudeville circuit, perfecting their comic routines in a number of different loose revues. The energy of this performance style is present in all their film work, but never with quite the rawness, vitality and rudeness that you will find here. You’ll laugh a lot.

ABOUT THIS SERIES
Scholar Dr. Caroline Frick joins us for a celebration of Hollywood films from the period of Hollywood history now known as the pre-code era.
