New Year, Old Movie

I went to see a Marx Brothers double feature last night at the Aero Theatre, which always shows the boys to start the new year.

The first title was A Night At The Opera, as surefire a film as they have.  I've seen it countless times, but always enjoy it with a crowd.  And on the big screen, you often catch new details.

But this time around, there was something else.  When Chico sat down to play his specialty number, I couldn't help be reminded of Debbie Reynolds.  That never happened before.

PS  The second film, Monkey Business, has Groucho arguing with the dense Chico, and then saying "there's my argument--restrict immigration." A famous joke, but one that played a bit differently in 2017.
