Review - Story of Mankind, The
I watched it because it was the last Marx Brothers movie, although they didn't appear in the same scenes. The movie wanted to be meaningful, but the stupidity of the plot, the terrible casting, and the frequent resorting to humor and camp — not to mention the fact that it was simply boring, just made it bad. There were references to the Bible—Moses makes an appearance, and the Bible is the final argument of the spirit of man, although what he claimed it proved was very vague. In the end, it was mans' "inherent moral" something or other that made him worth a second chance. So not only was it a terrible plot with terrible casting and acting, but it was theologically wrong.
