Film as Art: Danél Griffin's Guide to Cinema (1022 words)
The Cocoanuts was the first of six films that the Brothers did for Paramount, from 1929-1933 (the others were Animal Crackers, Monkey Business, I’ll Say She Is, Horse Feathers and, arguably their best, Duck Soup).
These six remain the best of their many films, due to the fact that instead of being slaves to the films’ plots, the plots were slaves to the Brothers’ anarchic slapstick.
The Cocoanuts presents the Brothers in good form, and is a good cinematic first step towards the masterpieces that would follow in the next few years.
