A Night at the Opera

Top 10 Comedies

Groucho Marx in A Night at the Opera

In their first film for MGM, the Marx Brothers dropped Zeppo — and also much of their anarchistic spirit. However, even toned down and saddled with a traditional romantic plot, Groucho, Harpo and Chico continue to be the mad generals in the continuing march from Vaudeville-style humor to modern cinematic comedy. A Night at the Opera contains some of their best routines, including the famous "stateroom scene," in which more and more people pile into Groucho's tiny ship's cabin, causing him to tell a nail technician giving him a manicure, "You'd better make them short; it's getting kind of crowded in here."
