50 “The Gods Look Down and Laugh”- our Animal Crackers deep dive featuring Heidi Gassel
Play • 2 hr 11 min
Our final plunge into the official Marx canon brings us to “Animal Crackers” and Bob’s favorite non-manicuring gal, Heidi, joins us for the ride.

Your hosts have made no secret that this stands atop their ranking of Marx films, and here we go in-depth why…while also admitting it’s not really a good film at all. We discuss the differences with the original Broadway play, and compare the movie to their maiden film voyage, “The Cocoanuts”.

We laud “Animal Crackers” stellar writing, supporting cast, and even the sets, but have nary a good word for Art Garfunkel…or whatever his name is.

So, if you can stand a couple of hours of us slobbering over this film, you’re in for a treat.
