    Description

    A Day at the Races (MGM, 1937). Fine/Very Fine. Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14").
    This was the second film that the Brothers Marx made for MGM after leaving Paramount, following a contract dispute, as well as the last film they made with Irving Thalberg as producer, who died unexpectedly at the age of 37 in 1936. Groucho often cited it as one of the Marx Brothers' very best pictures. General wear includes slight edge wear, mild creases, pinholes, and light surface scuffs. Also visible are mostly unobtrusive stains and smudges. The card with the three brothers and the lovely Esther Muir has some noticeable touchup applied to the borders and title area to address small paper lifts and other surface wear. The card with Groucho, Margaret Dumont, and Douglas Dumbrille has some strips of paper tape along two edges of the verso.
