Love Happy” was the last movie starring the Marx Brothers — Harpo Marx, Chico Marx, and Groucho Marx… and included a small role for an up-and-coming model/actress named Marilyn Monroe. Groucho was apparently particularly fond of the lady, as the photos below show.

The movie opened nationwide in March 1950, but had its official premiere in October of 1949.
