Monkey Business (1931)

Directed by
Norman Z. McLeod

The four Marx Brothers star in their first film written specifically for the screen with Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo stowaways on an ocean liner bound for New York. Each of them has a separate adventure on board; from matinee idol Zeppo's romancing of a bootlegger's daughter to Groucho having to avoid the attentions of gangster's moll Lucille Briggs. Norman Z. McLeod's film contains a trademark classic gag as the four try to slip past customs by each posing as Maurice Chevalier.
