“Groucho, Woody and… Chevy?” week kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with director John Landis introducing the Marx brothers’ “At the Circus,” featuring Groucho’s iconic song, “Lydia the Tatooed Lady.”
John Landis was the natural choice to talk about this middling post-Thalberg Marx Bros. movie. Can you guess why? Because it has Charlie Gemora in a Gorilla Suit! Groucho introduces the now iconic, W.S. Gilbert-inspired song “Lydia the Tatooed Lady”. This is the one where the boys save a circus from bankruptcy. Kinda topical, except for the circus part.
