    Description

    Monkey Business (Paramount, 1931). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Prior to this entry, all the Marx Brothers' previous films had been adapted from stage plays. This was the first of their films written directly for the screen, and is also their first true Hollywood film. The action begins aboard ship, where Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and Zeppo are stowing away in the hold. Trying to evade the ship's crew, they have misadventures aplenty, until they land in New York, where the fun really begins. One of the Brothers' best efforts, this is classic comedy at its finest. In the scene pictured on this exceptional lobby card, Harpo bedevils the ship's first mate, played with slow-burn intensity by the great Tom Kennedy. The card has pinholes in the corners, a crease in the top right, tears in the top and bottom border that have been repaired with tape on the reverse, and light overall soiling. Additionally, a small piece of the top right corner has been reattached with tape on the reverse. The central image area, however, remains virtually untouched, making this a perfect specimen for any advanced collection. Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
