The Marx Brothers take on high society. Two lovers who are both in opera are prevented from being together by the man's lack of acceptance as an operatic tenor. Pulling several typical Marx Brothers' stunts, they arrange for the normal tenor to be absent so that the young lover can get his chance.

Movies the giraffe watched: June 2012 (27 movies items)

"Re-watch - June 8th Perhaps a far better movie overall as far as the Marx Brothers' films go up to this point, as for once the plot is held to tightly & every scene serves a purpose. A Night at the Opera boasts some of the brothers' most memorable bits, including one of the Greatest scenes ever, the stateroom scene. And so in these respects it's definitely worthy of its distinction as a great classic movie. Yet the anarchy of their earlier films seems to have gone out with Zeppo, which is a lit"

"Comedy is always overlooked but this brilliant comedy is an example of what should sweep up all of the golden statues. "

30 Great Films from the 30s (30 movies items)

"The first of the Marx Brothers films made for MGM, 'A Night at the Opera' marked a slight change in style. The plentiful gags and manic set-pieces were still there but, at the behest of producer Irving Thalberg, the Marx Brothers were now recast as helpful characters who only aimed their mischief at deserving villains. While this arguably blunted the edge of their earlier films, for one film at least it certainly did nothing to decrease the quality. 'A Night at the Opera' is a grand picture. It"

Top 10 Memorable Spaghetti Scenes (10 movies items)

" Nothing is worse than the disappointing, nostalgic feeling you get when watching an old movie and you have to ask yourself, “Why can’t they make movies like this anymore?” Case in point: A Night at the Opera, by the Marx Brothers. At the center of this comedy masterpiece is a lively musical sequence that includes Allan Jones belting out a hearty vocal solo, Chico Marx performing his signature piano routine, and, of course, the ever poignant Harpo on the harp. And it all starts with a pla"

10 Greatest Comedies (11 movies items)

"While not nearly as pure as their masterpiece "Duck Soup," the Marx Brothers are still at the top of their game in this fantastic comedy that paces itself far more gently than is necessary. "Is my Aunt Minnie in here?" "I don't know. You can come in and prowl around if you wanna. If she's not in here, you can probably find somebody just as good!""
