Classic comedy films from the Marx brothers including 'A Night At The Opera', 'A Day At The Races', 'A Night In Casablanca', 'The Big Store', 'At The Circus' and 'Go West'. A Night At The Opera (1935) The Marx Brothers turn Mrs. Claypool's opera into chaos in their efforts to help two young hopefuls get a break. It contains the famous scene where Groucho, Chico and Harpo cram a ship's stateroom with wall-to-wall people, gags, one-liners, musical riffs and two hard-boiled eggs. A Day At The Races (1937) Groucho stars as Hugo Z. Hackenbush, a horse veterinarian dispensing horse pills and quips with equal glee. Chico selling racing tips, Harpo destroying a piano to turn it into a harp and favorite foil actress Margaret Dumont make this thoroughbred comedy wall-to-wall hilarity. Many of the sequences in the film were performed by the Marx Brothers on a special road tour of live engagements before making it to the screen. At The Circus (1939) Groucho stars as professional shyster lawyer J. Cheever Loophole in the middle of big-top bedlam as the boys try to save the circus and look to Margaret Dumont for the money to do so. Groucho sings one of his famous songs, 'Lydia the Tattooed Lady'. Go West (1940) The Marx men head to the land of outlaws and Indians where the fun never stops and where they outwit a land grabber. Highlights include Chico and Harpo bellying up to the bar, the $1 scam, the stagecoach ride and the brilliant train chase finale. The Big Store Groucho plays Attorney Wolf J. Flywheel whom with sidekick Wacky (Harpo) and bodyguard Ravelli (Chico) are investigating the shady dealings of a crooked department store owner. This is the last of nine films in which Margaret Dumont would appear with the Marx Brothers. A Night In Casablanca (1946) This parody of the Bogart/Bergman 1943 classic features the Nazis vs. the "nutsies" as the Marx Brothers foil Axis criminals when they find stolen jewels and paintings Nazis have hidden in a hotel. Playing Ronald Kornblow, Groucho is the manager of the Hotel Casablanca swirling with intrigue, while Chico is his bodyguard and Harpo plays a not- so-loyal valet to the villain.
