I watched The Cocoanuts, the first Marx brothers movie. It threatens to be overwhelmed early on with excessive singing and dancing, but the musical elements are chiefly operatic. It warms my heart to see a time when knowledge of the important opera plots and arias were current among the educated classes, and middle classes who liked to think themselves educated, and I despair for the current generation.
But yeah, Cocoanuts was ok. It was ok it was ok it was ok. My first posting name here was Zeppo. I was watching some Marx Bros. movie at the time stoned and this is the first time I've returned to them since. So I ought to get my licks in on all of the Zeppo-era ones.
