A Night in Casablanca

[Amazon Link] [2.5
stars] [IMDb Link]

I put this in my Blockbuster online queue awhile back since I wanted to make sure I'd seen all Marx Brothers movies.

As it turned out, I dimly remember seeing this before. Yes, it's pretty forgettable. Give me a few years, I'll probably rent it again for the same reason.

No Margaret Dumont, no Zeppo. Groucho takes an unconscionably long time to show up as the new manager of the Hotel Casablanca, whose last three managers have all been murdered by Nazi postwar thugs. There's a low-budget chase-action sequence at the end, kind of reminiscent of the train chase in Go West. But does anyone want to see Marx Brothers movies because of the thrilling action sequences?
