Young hopefuls trying to stage a Broadway show on a shoestring are sustained with food by expert shoplifter Harpo. They little suspect that his donations include the special sardine can hiding the Romanoff diamonds! Slinky Madame Egelichi and her henchmen will do anything to get them back, but the Marx Brothers lead them a merry chase.Written by

At first, the story for this movie revolved around Harpo Marx alone (he gets a story credit here) and was initially titled "Diamonds in the Basement". But the film couldn't get backing unless Groucho Marx and Chico Marx appeared as well, so they did. Harpo's 650-page autobiography makes no reference to this movie intended to showcase him.

The DVD version released in 2004 runs 91 minutes (despite what it says on the box) and contains several scenes not included in the 85 min. version long seen in the U.S.- 1.Harpo giving link sausages to the front man in a bull costume by threading them through a nostril in the bull head and handing the back end man a ham. 2. Groucho showing photos of himself in different disguises with Madame Egilichi and then providing voice-over narration for a scene of Chico trying to bribe Mr. Lyons by setting him up with a chorus girl. 3. Harpo being put through a washing machine by Madame Egilichi's henchmen. 4. Harpo becoming completely enveloped in smoke from the KOOL sign and ducking into an air vent which sucks away the smoke. This version is also missing a scene in which Groucho observes that the show would have been saved if Maggie had accepted the sardines Harpo gave her. See more »
Love Happy is the last movie where the Marx brothers appear together.Harpo is the biggest star of the movie.He gets in a trouble when he steals a sardine can that has Romanoff's diamond inside.Love Happy is good Marx movie.Groucho, Harpo and Chico are as good as they were in their younger days.And you can see Marilyn Monroe in a little part as Groucho's client.A must see for Marx fans, especially Harpo fans.
