A NIGHT AT THE OPERA (MGM, 1935; 92 minutes) finds the Marx
Brothers (Groucho, Harpo, Chico) bringing chaos to the opera house in what critic Leonard Maltin has called, “Arguably their finest film.”
Proceeded by the short subjects:
1. HELPMATES (Roach, 1932; 20 minutes), in which Stan Laurel helps
Oliver Hardy clean up his house after a wild party, with disastrous results;
2. DIZZY DETECTIVES (Columbia, 1943; 17 minutes), The 3 Stooges
(Curly, Larry, Moe), are inept policemen charged with capturing a burglar who disguises himself as a gorilla!
Three of the greatest comedy teams of all time on one giant bill!
