Marx Brothers Silver Screen 56% off Amazon DotD

Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection for $26.49
Includes:
The Cocoanuts / Animal Crackers / Monkey Business / Horse Feathers / Duck Soup
Plus a bonus disc of about 20 minutes of interviews.

I don't think it's that much of a deal. Personally, I'd say go for the UK Universal set, which has 8 films instead of 5, although no bonus features, but the US set is pretty skimpy anyway.

I hate to disagree with you there but this is a quality over quantity issue. Three out of the five here are stone cold classics in my book. The other set has their lesser stuff, this one is totally worth it.

^Yes, but you need a region free/PAL capable DVD player.

Of the 3 "extra" titles, "Room Service" is already on "The Marx Brothers Collection" along with "A Night at The Opera", "A Day at The Races", "A Night in Casablanca", "At the Circus", "Go West", and "The Big Store". The 2-fer with "At the Circus" is currently OOP (although it's part of the other set). You can pick up "Love Happy" as a separate DVD, and "A Girl in Every Port" is a low rated Groucho solo venture and as such really doesn't belong on a Marx *Brothers* collection, although it's only available in that UK set.

If you don't want to mess with PAL/Region 2 material, this is a farily good deal as this set rarely goes below $25.
