Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 26 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Day at the Races [1937] (DVD)
There seem to be two threads to Marx Brothers films: the very, very, good and the (frankly) rather dull. This is accounted for by who produced the films. So there are high budget and low budget productions. I'm happy to say that 'A Day at the Races' belongs to the former in both categories. It even includes a big jazz number by the (unlisted) Duke Ellington band. Both Harpo and Chico are on top musical form. Harpo, who I discover was born in 1888, demolishes not only a Rachmaninov Prelude for piano, but also the piano. For anyone interested in stagecraft this is truly an amazing scene. There are some daring horse-racing stunts done mainly by Harpo (before he got injured), and Groucho is red-hot with the wisecracks. There is some additional information on the DVD which makes this not only very entertaining, but a DVD for the film connoisseur.

Another good one: A Night At The Opera [1935]
