    Description

    A Night at the Opera (MGM, 1935) Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). In this Marx Brothers screwball comedy classic the brothers invade the high society world of opera with devastating, yet hilarious results. Brother Zeppo by this time had left the acting business, but Groucho, Chico, and Harpo combined their talents and turned in one of their best comedic performances. Many Marx Brothers fans consider "A Night at the Opera" the team's best film. The great character sketch artist Al Hirschfeld drew the Marx Brothers for the first time to advertise this film. There are multiple corner pinholes, a couple of pinholes in the border, light smudging, and the remnants of a small triangular censor stamp. The card has been professionally restored in a minimalist fashion and displays very well. This classic title card prominently displays the fabulous Hirschfeld caricatures of each brother. Very Fine-.
