The Wild West was never quite so wild as when the Marx Brothers rode into town! In this spoof of classic oaters, Groucho, Harpo, and Chico are three lovable losers from New York who head west in search of opportunity but instead find themselves mixed up with swindlers as they try to resolve a family feud. It all climaxes in a rootin’-tootin’ train-chase finale in which the boys chop up passenger cars in order to get the wood to stoke the locomotive.
