Love Happy (1949)

(aka: Kleptomaniacs)



Reviews and Comments

This last Marx Brothers film was originally supposed to star only Harpo -- Groucho and Chico were signed on later. It was a bad idea. There are moments of hilarity, but very few. The look and feel of the film is cheap compared to the team's other work, and the film's pacing undermines much of the humor. Not a total loss, but hardly up to the Marx Brothers standard. Trivia buffs should note the presence of then unknown Marilyn Monroe in a bit part.
