    I think we can all agree it's impossible for someone watching this film to be in the same boat as audiences in 1935. While the humor was revolutionary for its time, we have viewed the great-grandchildren of these jokes and it's no longer fresh to our eyes. We cannot grasp the full effect of the bawdy puns since they are (mostly) quite tame by modern standards. The context just isn't there, but the Marx Brothers manage to transcend time through their intelligence and talent. Even if it's not to your taste, it's a valuable work to know. 4 years 9 months ago
