Here is a musical talker, with the musical background, music, songs and girls, taken from the [1925] Broadway stage success [by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind] with the Marxes.

Cocoanuts is set in a Florida development hotel barren of guests. Groucho is the fast-thinking and talking boniface. A couple of slickers, girls, bathing beach, etc, some undressing but no s.a.

Groucho is always around and talking as he did in the stage show. Harpo does his work with craftsmanship. Chico has more of the comedy end than usually falls to this foil. Zeppo has to be straight here all of the while.

Only Irving Berlin song of merit is the theme number, ‘When Our Dreams Come True’, good enough musically but as trite in idea as the title suggests.
