DescriptionAt the Circus (MGM, 1939). Fine. Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Al Hirschfeld Artwork.
A follow up to the enormously successful Night at the Opera and Day at the Races, this installment casts Groucho as shyster lawyer J. Cheever Loophole, as he and his brothers proceed to "help" a circus avoid foreclosure. This comedy classic boasts Groucho's performance of "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady." This wonderful title card is drawn to perfection by lauded illustrator Al Hirschfeld. The card has edge wear, a few staple holes, and small chips in the left corners. There is a paper lift in the "R" of "Marx," scattered staining, and toning. Fine.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
