Monkey Business picture

Trivia: At one point, Thelma Todd is telling Groucho that she is living unhappily (and wants "freedom, liberty, justice, etc.). Groucho responds, "I know, I know, you're a woman who's been getting nothing but dirty breaks her whole life. Well we can clean and fix those breaks, but you'll have to stay in the garage all night." Less than four years later, Thelma Todd died of carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of being locked in a garage with a running car. There has been much controversy as to whether her death was an accident or not, even to this day.

Dracula picture

Trivia: To accommodate all sorts of viewers, the studio also made a silent version of the film (for cinemas without sound equipment) and a Spanish-speaking version (to be shown in Latin America). The Spanish version is considered a better film, because it was filmed after the English takes each day, so the Spanish director and actors would watch the English takes and decide how to improve on them.
