  1. Another masterpiece and often overlooked. Neil Simon's script is up there with his 'Odd Couple'.... trivia I always remember.... A British stand-in once said that Victor Mature wouldn't step off a curb if a stand in was around. That vanity and ego, was apparently improvised on set by the writer and director. Basing the hair dye,sleep exhaustion the incompetent acting of the real Victor Mature on the character Mature was playing, and he never realised they were exploiting his own foibles. Turns out it was VM's greatest role....lol

  3. An absolutely Brilliant film. THANK YOU
  4. "Why A Duck ?" Thank you for this. Legend has it that Chico went through the entire chorus line.... stamina eh? Harpo, in his autobiography said that before films, and when they played the vaudeville circuit.... the brothers nicknamed him "Chick-O" because of his pursuit of ladies. That was changed to "Chico" on this, their first film, to be less controversial. The "Why-a-Duck?" insane conversation is equal to the 'sanity clause' between Grouch and Chico in a later film. I see you have loads of Marx Brothers...I'm so pleased I joined. P.S. The "Why a Duck?" scene starts at about 44 mns
