    Description

    A Day at the Races (MGM, 1937). Pre-War Belgian (24" X 33.25").
    By the time the Marx Brothers left Paramount after Duck Soup, 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 director Irving Thalberg, resulted in two of the funniest pictures of their careers, A Night at the Opera and A Day at the Races. Thalberg died soon after shooting began on this picture, and many critics, as well as Groucho himself, thought that the Marx Brothers' films were never again quite as good. In pristine condition and featuring some excellent Al Hirschfeld-inspired artwork, this pre-war Belgian poster shows no noticeable flaws and has had no further restoration after being backed on linen. Very Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
