Animal Crackers is a black & white 1930 Pre-Code Marx Brothers comedy film, in which mayhem and zaniness ensue when a valuable painting goes missing during a party in honor of famed African explorer Captain Spaulding. The film stars the four brothers, Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and Zeppo Marx, with Lillian Roth and Margaret Dumont. It was directed by Victor Heerman and adapted from a successful 1928 Broadway musical of the same title by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind, also starring the Marx Brothers and Margaret Dumont. As a Pre-Code film, in the late 1920s and early 1930s, subject matter often included sexual innuendo, miscegenation, profanity, illegal drug use, promiscuity, prostitution, infidelity, abortion, intense violence, and homosexuality – many of which can be observed in this bawdy production. #animalcrackers #blackandwhite #marxbrothers #comedy #film #movies #streaming #moviezoot

“Fists of Fury,” also known as “The Big Boss,” is a 1971 Martial Arts / Action / Drama film written and directed by Wei Lo starring the infamous Bruce Lee, Maria Yi, James Tien, and Yong-Chieh Han, and tells the story of how a young martial arts master, committed to non-violence, reluctantly but masterfully pits his inner warrior against the criminal forces behind the disappearance of his cousins. This was Bruce Lee’s first major film, however it was written for James Tien. When the film’s original director, Ng Kar-seung, was replaced by Lo, Lee was given the leading role instead. Lee’s strong performance overshadowed Tien, already a star in Hong Kong, and made Bruce Lee famous across Asia – and soon – the world. #fistsoffury #thebigboss #1971 #martialarts #action #drama #movie #film #weilo #brucelee #mariayi #jamestien #yongchiehhan #nonviolence #warrior #criminals #ngkarseung #stars #asia #famous #moviezoot #streamingmovies
“36 Crazy Fists” is a 1977 Martial Arts/Action/Drama film directed by Chi-Hwa Chen, billed as starring Jackie Chan (but he is nowhere to be seen in the movie – he was the fight choreographer and stunt man!), and actually stars Siu-Hung Leung, Michelle Yim and Lau Chan. 36 Crazy Fists tells the story of a man struggling to learn Kung Fu to avenge the death of his father who was murdered by Manchurian gangsters. Lots of stellar martial arts action, and wonderful set-ups for humor, but somehow the punch lines never seem to hit home. Maybe it was lost in translation? Or editing … but still a great martial arts period piece! #36crazyfists #martialarts #action #drama #movie #film #chihyachen #jackiechan #siuhungleung #michelleyim #lauchan #kungfu #moviezoot
