A NIGHT AT THE OPERA
1935, Warner Bros., 96 min, Dir: Sam Wood

The Marx Brothers' first film for MGM – also their first without Zeppo and their biggest box office hit – finds them in the mix with a couple of beleaguered opera-singer pals who are having career trouble. Enjoy the stateroom scene, the contract routine and tons of great one-liners. And remember: "There ain't no sanity clause!" Numerous writers (many uncredited) include George S. Kaufman and even Buster Keaton. With Kitty Carlisle, Allan Jones, Sig
Ruman and Margaret Dumont.


35 mm!

A DAY AT THE RACES
1937, Warner Bros., 111 min, Dir: Sam Wood

The Marx Brothers’ second (and most expensive) MGM film serves up Groucho as Dr. Hugo Z. Hackenbush, who arouses all sorts of suspicion as the new head of a posh sanitarium - and with good reason: He’s actually a veterinarian! Includes the celebrated "tootsie-fruitsie" and examination routines, plus a tremendous cast including Maureen O’Sullivan, Allan Jones, Douglass Dumbrille, Sig Ruman, Esther Muir and, of course, Margaret Dumont.
