Description

    A Day At The Races (MGM, 1937). Midget Window Card (8" X 14"). By the time the Marx Brothers left Paramount after Duck Soup (1933), they were already major stars, having conquered both Broadway and the silver screen. Their subsequent move to MGM, and their all-too-brief association with wunderkind Irving Thalberg, resulted in two of the funniest pictures of their careers, A Night at the Opera and A Day at the Races. In the latter, Groucho plays Dr. Hugo Z. Hackenbush, a horse doctor illicitly running a sanitarium. From there, things get really strange! Paper from this period in the Marx Brothers' career is very scarce and extremely sought after. This card has had the top imprint area professionally replaced and shows some very slight edge wear. Other than that, this attractive piece, with its charming caricatures of the three brothers by Al Hirschfield, is a beauty; a great piece from a classic film. Fine/Very Fine.
