28. A Night in Casablanca (1946)
From now on the essence of this hotel will be speed. If a customer askes you for a three-minute egg, give it to him in two minutes. If he askes you for a two-minute egg, give it to him in one minute. If he askes you for a one-minute egg, give him the chicken and let him work it out for himself!
Pretty much the last hurrah for the Marx Brothers. Nowhere near their best, but still more of the same slap-stick fun and machine gun rapid dialogue. One of my favorite chase scenes in any of their films is this films finale as a taxi chases down an airplane.
