Love Happy movie sceneThe 1949 music-filled comedy Love Happy was the final film starring the legendary Marx Brothers (Duck Soup, Animal Crackers).

In the film, Harpo Marx is a true patron of the arts, taking from the rich to help feed a group of poor actors struggling to open a new musical without financial backers. He unknowingly makes off with the missing Romanoff diamonds when he shoplifts a tin of sardines from a classy Manhattan market. The diamonds have been smuggled into the country by a sinful yet sizzlingly beautiful jewel thief, Madame Egelichi (Ilona Massey). The Madame traces the tin back to the theater and becomes the show’s financial backer. Hoping to recover the missing diamonds, she and her henchmen nearly bring the whole house down in a madcap race to retrieve the jewels on opening night.

In addition to Harpo, Chico and Groucho, the movie also stars Vera-Ellen (White Christmas), Raymond Burr (Godzilla) and Marilyn Monroe (Some Like it Hot).

Far from the Marx Brothers’ finest hour, Love Happy, which was directed by David Miller (Sudden Fear), makes its official DVD and Blu-ray release with this edition from Olive Films.
