AFS Precode Treasures: The Marx Bros 'The Cocoanuts' in 35mm
Please note, this event has expired.
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.
