Victor Heerman directs the Marx Brothers, Lillian Roth and Margaret Dumont in this early vehicle where the boys find themselves in a garden party farce involving a forged painting.
A couple of pointless songs and some incompressible plot about a painting being swapped around aside, there’s enough wacky vaudeville here that this just about holds its own with their zany best. Harpo is lustier than usual, Groucho gets half a dozen killer lines. Lillian Roth puts in an unusually overeager performance as the totty.
