Long live the Marxist regime

There are plenty of hilarious scenes in the film. My favourite is the scene in which Groucho and Chico interview the circus midget in his trailer. Naturally the furniture and the room itself are built on a miniature scale. In another scene, Groucho attempts to retrieve a wallet full of stolen cash from a buxom woman, who discreetly slips it into her bra. As Groucho ponders the situation, he says to the audience: "There must be some way I can get that money back without getting in trouble with the Hays Office" (the film censorship board). In another scene, Chico and Harpo search the cabin of the circus strongman as he sleeps. At one point, Harpo crawls under the mattress, with the strongman on top. As a result, every time the strongman shifts position, Harpo's horn sounds off!
