    Description

    At the Circus (MGM, 1939). Very Good/Fine on Linen. French Grande (47" X 62.25") Jean Une Poissonnie Artwork.
    Groucho's rendition of the classic tune, "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady" is the highlight of this Marx Brothers comedy, in which the brothers save a mortgaged circus by convincing a Newport socialite to buy it for one show only. The film also co-stars Margaret Dumont and Eve Arden. Featuring artwork by Jean Une Poissonnie, this is a wonderful depiction of the Marx Brothers in one of their most famous MGM films. Prior to professional restoration, the poster had chipping and tears in the borders and folds. Some of the tears extended into the interior, and there is paper loss along the bottom border that goes into part of the credits. There is airbrushing in the borders and white background, and the poster has some post-restoration soft folds. Very Good/Fine on Linen.
