Sub-par material for the Marx Brothers, but even bad Marx comedies are better than just about anything else, so why complain? The fabulous threesome are reunited when Groucho is asked to be the manager at a mysterious hotel in Casablanca where its former managers have all been suspiciously bumped off. The purple-hearted soldier who is looking to clear his name of some recent suspicious charges believes that the murder is linked to stolen Nazi treasure, but it will take the crazy antics of Harpo and Chico to help prove him right and release him from his angry superiors. The script doesn’t shine the way A Night At The Opera or A Day At The Races did, but the one-liners are still zingers, and the energy is still as manic as ever.
