Directed by Norman Z. McLeod

With The Marx Brothers

In their first picture under the stewardship of McLeod, the Marx Brothers take to the high seas as stowaways on an ocean liner before getting inadvertently mixed up with some tough-talking gangsters. Their first film to be written directly for the screen and not based on one of their Broadway acts was a colossal box-office success despite being banned in some countries for promoting anarchic behavior. In one memorable scene, the four brothers attempt to pass themselves off as French crooner Maurice Chevalier—a particularly tall order for the famously silent Harpo. Comedienne extraordinaire Thelma Todd replaced Margaret DuMont as the female foil.
