i was rather disappointed to discover that "a night at the opera" had been omitted from this marx brothers collection. in my opinion, that film represents some of the team's greatest comedy. it's mainly for that reason that i give this dvd set 4 stars instead of 5.
however, the inclusion of "a day at the races" partially compensates. i'd nominate that film as being by far the best out of the 4 films here. the sheer madness of the sketches and the energy in which they are executed, along with the brilliant climax, help make this one an enduring classic of film comedy. "room service" and "at the circus" have some good scenes but on the whole, both the marx brothers and the material were starting to wear a bit thin. i personally hated "a night in casablanca," the magic just wasn't there anymore. the plot and direction were practically non-existent.
there aren't any special features with this set but that doesn't really matter.

It took 3 weeks before this item arrived, whether it was delayed by UK or a European dispatcher I can't say.
Because of problems with Land-codes, European blu-ray or dvd players can only play the dvd including movie A Day at The Races. I tried to switch to US and Canadian land-code, but that didn't help.
I won't recommend this item to anyone, because you pay for 4 movies and can only watch 2 of them.

This is a laugh a minute series of class act comedy. Some material does not age well. However the Marx bros does. Borne out by our 17 yr-old daughter; and our other offsprings...this comedy has stood the test of time. Alongside the likes of Laurel and Hardy, and other Classic material...including Alf Garnette...and - Dad's Army. As fresh today; as it ever was - Brilliant!
