An enjoyable evening highlighted by the wit and dialogue of Groucho Marx. A bit long and too much music, but I suppose it was as it was originally on Vaudeville.

Description

Hooray for Captain Spaulding!

Hilarity ensues in this classic Marx Brothers musical when Mrs. Rittenhouse’s swanky house party honoring the African explorer Captain Spaulding is interrupted by the pilfering of a prominent painting. Screwball antics arise as the guests search for the thief, resulting in this “uproarious slapstick comedy” (New York Times_). An adaptation of the original 1928 Broadway hit and classic 1930 film, this “madcap musical” (_Chicago Tribune) features favorite songs including “Three Little Words,” “I Wanna Be Loved by You,” and others.
