The Marx Bros. - Best to worst (13 movies items)

" A solid if unexceptional entry from the Marx Bros. It's entertaining, the cast is decent, and there are some good laughs along the way. The plot could easily be wrapped up in 30 minutes, but gets stretched out to almost 90 minutes. That could be a problem if you're not a fan of the Marx Brothers' comedy, since the plots of their films are usually secondary to the humor anyway, but this time out there aren't many big memorable moments like most of the films that preceded it."

Garbo Inspires! - Greta Garbo References (25 movies items)

" J. Cheever Loophole : My life was wrapped around the circus. Her name was Lydia. I met her at the world's fair in 1900, marked down from 1940. Ah, Lydia. She was the most glorious creature under the su-un. Thais. DuBarry. Garbo... Rolled into one! Groucho Marx mentions Greta Garbo as part of his "Lydia" musical number in "At the Circus". He illustrates a tattooed lady's beauty by comparing her to Garbo and others in a marvelously energetic, catchy, and wonderfully written song that I consider"
