What a great package of funny Marx Brothers Movies. Five in all and a documentary on the Brothers as well. The package includes "Animal Crackers", "Horse Feather", "Duck Soup" "Monkey Business" and "Coconuts". My favorite Marx Brothers movie is not in the set which is "A Night at the Opera". KCLS does own copies of it though and it shouldn't be overlooked. All the movies are great for sight gags that you just don't see anymore. The Brothers were all so talented playing musical instruments, singing, and doing the stunts like falling out of closets together. These Marx Brothers movies are Timeless Classics that will be enjoyed by many generations to come!
