I don't remember seeing it ... let me know what you think. I do like Fred Allen. I haven't seen much of his film work beyond a couple of his one-reel Vitaphone shorts. It's good to know that some of the more "obscure" films are getting an airing on Blu-ray. We don't have a Blu-ray player yet, 'cause we still have an non-HD analog TV. I've heard there's a mouthwatering Blu-ray of Buster Keaton's "The General."
That line from Animal Crackers just made me laugh. Groucho could be risque, from what I understand (I've read some of his personal letters...I've heard he could cuss like a sailor, too).

From what I understand, this is Fred Allen's only starring role in a feature film. I'll let you know what I think.
