25 “Send Out The Clowns”

June 24, 2020

Our contractually obligated deep dive into “At The Circus”, where your hosts are as enthused watching the film as the Marxes were in making it. We try our best to make sense out of this jumble of wonderful and embarrassing moments.

You’ll scream as you experience the lost courtroom scene that MGM cut instead of "Two Blind Loves"….you’ll thrill as we struggle to remember plot points no one cares about anyhow…you’ll jump for joy as we play no clips of Groucho yelling “Help Pauline!”

NOTE: This ep does contain moments of explicit language, which should be a hint to those still wondering what we thought of the film.

Name-checked in this episode: Marilyn Monroe, Eddie Deezen, Adolf Hitler.
