Love Happy movie poster - Marx Brothers (Groucho, Chico, Harpo) and Marilyn MonroeLove Happy - Marilyn Monroe with Groucho MarxLove Happy, the final Marx Brothers film was originally written (by Harpo Marx himself) as a vehicle for Harpo, who had been wanting to pursue a solo film career.   However, Chico was again in financial distress, and Harpo helped him by adding him to the film.   Groucho had no interest in making the film, however, Harpo – „¢s financial backers were unwilling to back a film with only two of the three Marx Brothers, and joined the film – €under his conditions.   This is why Groucho spends most of the film narrating, and why much of the humor is centered around Harpo.   The ending is very funny, reminiscent of Harpo – „¢s physical hijinks in classic Marx Brothers films like  A Night at the Opera.   Also, be forewarned – €although Marilyn Monroe features prominently on the cover of the DVD, she – „¢s only in the movie for a short period of time.
