A Girl in Every Port isn’t one of Groucho Marx’s great movies but has some nice, family friendly, humor to it. This DVD was released through Warner’s MOD Archive Collection which unfortunately does not come with any features but the video/audio transfers are both decent enough.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Navy seaman Benny Linn (GROUCHO MARX) is flabbergasted when his pal, Navy seaman Tim Dunnovan (WILLIAM BENDIX), squanders his inheritance on Little Erin, a horse he’s never seen. Talking their put-upon superior into granting them five days leave in order to unswindle Dunnovan, Benny sets to shore with purpose and chicanery in mind. Tracking down the horse’s trainer (GENE LOCKHART), the salts discover their seemingly lame horse has a secret twin – Little Shamrock – owned by lovely carhop Jane Sweet (Marie Wilson). In short order, we have fake Southern gentlemen, switched and double-switched equines, angry gangsters, stumbling saboteurs and one henpecked businessman (DON DEFORE), who may just be Jane’s true love. In order to save the day, it’s time for Groucho to ride!

 

SPECIAL FEATURES — 0/5


No features included.

 

VIDEO — 3.75/5, AUDIO — 3.5/5


A Girl in Every Port is presented with a 1.33 full frame aspect ratio and the audio provided is a standard Dolby Digital Mono track. Nothing fancy in either regard, but still more than adequate especially considering the movie is going on 60 years old.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, A Girl in Every Port isn’t one of Groucho Marx’s great movies but has some nice, family friendly, humor to it. This DVD was released through Warner’s MOD Archive Collection which unfortunately does not come with any features but the video/audio transfers are both decent enough.
