Along with this, the Marx Brothers films - as with most all Hollywood  
product - were subtitled or overdubbed for release into various  
overseas (that is, non-US) markets. These, of course, required  
translations of dialogue and song lyrics, a job usually handled by  
the overseas distributors, which knew the specific needs - and  
restrictions - of their markets. This has resulted in all kinds of  
variations to dialogue, song lyrics, and even plot lines.
