Room Service/ At the Circus
The Marx Bros. try to find a backer for a Broadway play. Then they scramble to find a backer for a circus. So we put them backer to backer in this hilarious twofer. In Room Service (co-starring Lucille Ball and Anne Miller), a cash-strapped theatrical troupe reasons no one would bounce a sick man from a hotel room. And that leads to a diagnosis of crazy comedy involving feigned illness, fake suicides, a bogus physician and more Marxist doctorin'. The 3-ring circus that is Groucho, Chico and Harpo provide big-top bedlam At the Circus. Groucho and Chico work a badge skit, Chico and Harpo scour a strongman's bedroom for evidence, Groucho extols Lydia the Tatooed Lady and logic, like the orchestra at the film's antic conclusion, is cut adrift and out to sea. You can learn a lot from Lydia. And you can laugh a lot with these two classic romps.
