Another Marx Brother’s film! This one has Our Boys involved in Hot Circus Action, gorillas gone wild, ceiling walking, quotes galore, cannons, quips, gags, and lots of fun. A welcome change from the parade of Turkish Monstrosities.

A Day at the Races

1937
Starring
Groucho Marx as Dr. Hugo Z. Hackenbush

Chico Marx as Tony
Margaret Dumont as Mrs. Upjohn
