Watch Animal Crackers - Alternative Versions.
When "Animal Crackers" was re-released after decades in hiding (due to
copyright problems), the ticket-buyer & ticket-holder lines at New
York's Sutton Theatre stretched down 57th Street for every showing. I
was dazzled when I first sat through this film-- it seemed as if there
was a kind of magic in the theatre that night. I can remember having
goosebumps when Lillian Roth sang "Why Am I So Romantic?".
I was working as manager of the Paris Theatre on 58th Street when
"Animal Crackers" opened at the Sutton, and because both houses were
part of the Cinema-5 circuit, I was always able to get passes. -- In
this case, because I had also worked as 'relief manager' at The Sutton
on many occasions, I was well known to the staff and had entry to that
theatre whenever I wanted. --During the 'opening' run of "Animal
Crackers," I often walked over to The Sutton when my day's shift was
complete at The Paris.
I can tell you that every screening of "Animal Crackers" that I
attended was packed. And every time I was present for the film's end, I
witnessed a standing ovation-- something that many film producers can
only dream of.
I often tried to imagine myself attending a 'live' performance of this
show. --As many have mentioned here, "Animal Crackers" was a hit
Broadway show, starring the Marx Brothers, long before it was filmed by
Rather than complaining that this film is "stagey", many who comment
here would do well to remember that a film like this is as close to a
Broadway show as millions of people will ever get. The annoying
penchant some viewers have for wondering why the film version of a
Broadway hit show (especially a musical-comedy) isn't more "opened-up"
is both tiresome and moot.
Also, the constant comparison of "Animal Crackers" to other Marx
Brothers films (especially the later MGM films) is an
'apples-to-oranges' kind of thing. It would make far more sense to
compare it to other early filmed-versions of it's Broadway
contemporaries, such as "Rio Rita" or "Flying High" or "Girl Crazy"....
Although the stage show of "Animal Crackers" was on Broadway long
before I was born, (and the film's initial premier pre-dates me by
almost as long), I am forever gratified to have been able to attend the
1974 "re-opening" of the film in New York, and to see, feel, and
participate in, the audiences' jubilant reactions.
I rated this film 10/10. It's a perfect comedy, with (theatre-goers
will recognize this-) honest-to-goodness Broadway music-- and with
Lillian Roth, too. "Animal Crackers" is a great show in every respect.
