Abstract:
[Disc 1]. In Arsenic and old lace, a drama critic about to marry discovers insanity runs in his family. In A night at the opera, a New York scandal, a riot on a ship, and an evening of insanity in a concert hall are some of the problems resulting from Groucho's outrageous business schemes. The goal-- to bring Milan's finest opera stars to Manhattan.

[Disc 2]. In The long, long trailer, newlyweds hit the honeymoon road with a 40-foot trailer in tow. In Father of the bride, chaos reigns when the beautiful daughter of a family casually announces her plans to marry. What follows is a warmly humorous story, with wedding preparations, ruffled egos and the unavoidable meeting with the prospective in-laws.
