Groucho, Chico, Harpo - all certifiably wacko in a double dip of comedies. The Marxmen Go West (Side A) to where the sun always shines, the fun never sets and where they outwit a land grabber. Highlights include the $1 scam, the stagecoach ride, Chico and Harpo belly up to the bar and the train-chase finale. They go east in The Big Store (side B), becoming detective-cum-bodyguards for a department store. Our sleuths don't have a clue except in laughing matters. Chico and Harpo share a piano keyboard, beds disappear into walls, roller skates provide in-store mobility and Groucho warbles "Sing While You Sell". Sold!
GO WEST: The way the West wasn't won. The Marx Brothers mess with manifest destiny when they head to the Wild West on the railroad.
THE BIG STORE: Groucho, Harpo, and Chico star as New York detectives trying to foil the hostile takeover of a New York department store. This was the final film in which Groucho and Margaret DuMont appeared together.
