A NIGHT AT THE OPERA / A NIGHT IN CASABLANCA
Introduction by Groucho Marx’s grandson, Andy Marx.

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 NIGHT IN CASABLANCA
1946, Westchester Films, 85 min, USA, Dir: Archie Mayo

Among the final features from the Marx Brothers, this comedy puts Groucho, Chico and Harpo in postwar Casablanca, where escaped Nazi Heinrich Stubel (Sig Ruman) is trying to recover a fortune in stolen art. The loot is hidden in a local hotel, and when Groucho becomes manager of the place, he winds up on Stubel's hit list.
