Films with the Marx Brothers

December 25 to 30, 2015


Between Christmas and New Year, the Film Museum traditionally showcases films featuring the Marx brothers. This year's program comprises one Marx Brothers and one Harold Lloyd classic per day. To start things off, Animal Crackers will meet Lloyd's The Freshman on December 25; while on the next day, December 26, his breathtaking Safety Last! will be followed by the Marxian war satire Duck Soup. The other “combos” are A Night at the Opera and Girl Shy (Dec 27); Never Weaken and A Sailor-Made Man, followed by The Cocoanuts (Dec 28); The Big Store and Lloyd's final masterpiece Speedy (Dec 29); and his Dr. Jack and A Night in Casablanca (Dec 30).
