    Description

    At the Circus (MGM, 1939). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Although many contend that all the Marx Brothers' best movies were circuses, this one is actually set in one, as Groucho, as lawyer J. Cheever Loophole, along with brothers Chico, as Antonio, and Harpo, as Punchy, try to save their friend Jeff's (Kenny Baker) circus from being sold out from under him. A fine example of the Brothers at their best, the highlight of this film is Groucho's rendition of the classic, "Lydia the Tattooed Lady." This classic scene card, which features Groucho and straight woman Margaret Dumont, widely considered "the fifth Marx Brother," has creasing in the top right corner, a small tear in the right border, light staining in the bottom right corner that has been partially touched up with paint, creases in the bottom left, several small tears in the left border, a few very small areas of surface paper loss in the left and top border that have been touched up with paint, and some small stains in the top portion of the image area. In spite of these very minor flaws, this remains a great card spotlighting one of history's greatest comedic teams. Fine/Very Fine.
