Review by Marlene Blummis (posted on 27-Oct-2007)

Fabulous fantasy film in the midst of a raucous Marx Bros. comedy. Their vaudevillian shtick is either your cup of darjeeling or not, but in the midst of this film is a fantasy sequence starring Harpo that is one of his best moments in film. He finds a secret doorway in the elevator shaft and inside is a room filled with treasure and, of course, a harp, which is his cue and excuse to play a classical piece on that instrument to the joy and edification of the audience. Today's audiences don't have the sitzfleisch to sit through such a performance.
