Room Service ★★½ 1938

The Marx Brothers provide less than the usual mayhem here with Groucho as a penniless theatrical producer determined to remain in his hotel room until he can secure funds for his next play. Ball doesn't help matters much either. Not bad, but certainly not up to the zany Marx clan's usual stuff. 78m/B VHS, DVD . Groucho Marx, Harpo Marx, Chico Marx, Lucille Ball, Ann Miller, Frank Albertson, Donald MacBride, Charles Halton; D: William A. Seiter; W: Morrie Ryskind; C: J. Roy Hunt; M: Roy Webb.
