There's No Business Like Stow Business

This motley crew's tossed on a ship
They're not at a loss for a quip
No esprit d'escalier
They flee as Chevalier
And the plot gets impossibly flip.

David Cairns

The four Marx Brothers are stowaways in Monkey Business (Norman McLeod; 1931). From Wikipedia: "The most famous sequence from this film involves the four brothers attempting to get off the ship using a passport stolen from famous singer (and fellow Paramount star) Maurice Chevalier."
