Laughter filled The Slaughtered Lamb tonight as we screened the oldest film and first comedy in the series, the Marx Brothers classic A Night at the Opera. With so many classic set pieces spread across a number of excellent films, it's hard to pick just one to try and represent them all, but between the reading of the contract, the packed stateroom, and re-arranged hotel room sequences, I decided to go with this one as it remains a personal favorite.
After watching it on the big screen, I'm further convinced that a Marx Brothers marathon should make it into our Wednesday night lineups one of these days. I might even be able to convince the regulars, if we zip through the non-Chico and non-Harpo musical numbers...
