Mr. Hammer runs a bankrupt Florida hotel. He'll try anything to make money, even make love to rich Mrs. Potter. But his main scheme, selling real estate, is in danger of sabotage from zanies Chico and Harpo, who also reduce the schemes of a pair of jewel thieves to chaos. A subplot involves the star-crossed love of Polly Potter and architect Bob Adams. Written by

Harpo Marx' red wig looks black in this movie. For all subsequent movies, he wore a lighter colored red wig to make it show up better on film. In some of those films (e.g. Animal Crackers (1930)) Harpo is referred to as a redhead. See more »

Do you know what you are trying to say?
Yes, it is not what I'm thinking of. What I meant was, if we had a nice little bungalow and you was on the inside and I was on the outside trying to get in and me inside trying to get out or, no you're inside out and I was upside - I'll tell you, if you don't hear from me by next Friday, the whole things off!

A wonderful slice of early movie history. Talkies still in infancy. Basically a broadway play put on film. There's so much to enjoy and study. The fashion is still 20's flapper, and look at those hips and thighs, amazing. Check out the jokes, they probably were funny back then. A rich 'time machine' tapestry to appreciate. Don't try to compare but view it on its own uniqueness. Corny and wonderful.
