Trivia

Groucho Marx told an anecdote - both on a '60s Today Show segment and in print - that the movie's producer asked three aspiring actresses to walk seductively past Marx. Whomever Marx decided was the best walker would play opposite him in the film. When the third girl walked past, Marx asked the producer, "How could you possibly choose anyone but that last one?" Marx had chosen Marilyn Monroe for the film. See more »

Marx brothers together for the last time

Love Happy is the last movie where the Marx brothers appear together.Harpo is the biggest star of the movie.He gets in a trouble when he steals a sardine can that has Romanoff's diamond inside.Love Happy is good Marx movie.Groucho, Harpo and Chico are as good as they were in their younger days.And you can see Marilyn Monroe in a little part as Groucho's client.A must see for Marx fans, especially Harpo fans.
