Editorial Reviews

A DAY AT THE RACES - It's a prescription for laughter as the Marxes skewer the medical profession and bring home a racetrack winner. On your Marx for tootsie-frootsie ice cream, madcap medical exams, wallpaper wackiness and more. A NIGHT IN CASABLANCA - It’s the Nazis vs. the nutsies when the brotherly trio foils Axis criminal activity at a hotel swirling in intrigue and whirling with nonstop nonsense. ROOM SERVICE - Lucille Ball and Ann Miller co-star with the boys in a riotous romp about a cash-strapped theatrical troupe trying to nail down a backer for their new Broadway venture. AT THE CIRCUS - Big-top bedlam results in this 3-ring comedy caper in which Groucho sings the praises of Lydia the Tattooed Lady and Eve Arden slinks around the walls and ceiling as a shady acrobat.

Format: DVD
The two really great films that the Marx Brothers did after they left Paramount were "A Night at the Opera" (the best IMHO) and "A Day at the Races". These two have Margaret Dumont sparring with Groucho as usual. "Races" and "Opera" were the two films that boy genius Irving Thalberg supervised after personally wooing the Marx's to come to MGM in the first place. Louis B. Mayer really had no use for the brothers, and it shows in the kinds of films they were given after Thalberg died in 1936. The best of the Marx Brothers are what they did at Paramount, still with us in The Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection (The Cocoanuts / Animal Crackers / Monkey Business / Horse Feathers / Duck Soup). The Marx Brothers were iconoclasts at heart, and after the production code began to be enforced they really had no home in motion pictures. I think Irving Thalberg was wrong to think that the problem was that the brothers never helped anyone in their movies, but the formula he came up with in "Opera" and "Races" did make their comedy work in the age of the code.

"At the Circus" and "A Night in Casablanca" are OK. On the bright side "At the Circus" has Margaret Dumont. On the not so bright side it is infected with musical numbers that are, quite frankly, boring. "A Night in Casablanca" almost gets the boys back to the quality they had in the mid 30's under Thalberg, so it is worthwhile viewing, although it does lend a generosity to the boys that simply does not fit their brand of humor.

"Room Service" (1938) is actually an RKO film, so for once no musical numbers.

How can you go wrong with 4 Marx brothers classics. I watched the first one last night "Room Service" and it is still one of my favorites. I was skeptical at first when I saw that four movies were bundled together, but I found the quality of the prints to be surprisingly clean, plus you also get wacky cartoons like The Daffy Doc (1938) with a young and crazy Daffy Duck & Porky Pig and Our Gang comedies as well along with movie trailers. An excellent bargain for the price. The reason A Night At The Opera is not included was probably because it is a major movie and that one in itself is full of various extra features as well. You can buy that one at bargain prices as well. Stop complaining! People used to pay $25 for one movie 25 years ago. This buy is well worth it at approx. half that old price and with four times as much and with better quality.

A Day at the Races, A Night in Casablanca, Room Service, and At the Circus are included in this classic comedy collection. In the first film, the laughs do not stop when these guys skewer the medical profession and bring home a horse track winner. Wacky fun! In the second film, it is Nazis against nutsos when the Brothers foil Nazi activity at a hotel with total nonsense. Hilarious! In the third movie, Lucille Ball(I Love Lucy) and Ann Miller guest star in a laugh riot about a poor broadway act tryin to "get a gig". Classic comedy all-star cast! In the last film, comedy at the circus galore! Lydia the Tattooed Lady and Eve Arden co-star. Very funny! Just like The Three Stooges, Our Gang, The Little Rascals, and Laurel & Hardy, this comedy is still talked about and viewed after over 70 years! This is the hilarious, clean comedy that your grandma and grandpa watched when they were young! Why do people still watch it to this day? One reason: IT IS HILARIOUS. This is like classic rock. It will never die.

the movies were as clear and crisp as when I first saw them 40 years ago. Such a treat to be able to find them again after all these years

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Man VINE VOICE on April 22, 2010
Format: DVD
"TCM Classic Films Collection: The Marx Brothers" contains four feature films: "A Day at the Races," "A Night in Casablanca," "Room Service," and "At the Circus."

In "A Day at the Races" (1937), Groucho is Dr. Hackenbush, the epitome of quackery whose special patient is Mrs. Emily Upjohn (Margaret Dumont). There was never a better comic foil than Ms. Dumont and she is in great form here, especially when she undergoes a medical examination that includes a shoeshine, manicure, and shave. Groucho and Chico engage in a seven-minute routine in which Chico, hawking "tutsi-fruitsi ice cream," sells Groucho a racing tip which requires a succession of books to decode.

"At the Circus" (1939) is memorable mostly for Groucho's rendition of "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady," which became one of his signature songs. Margaret Dumont is on hand again, this time as Mrs. Dukesbury to Groucho's J. Cheever Loophole, and Eve Arden contributes her comic talents as Peerless Pauline, a shady acrobat.

My son asked that I get this for him, since he enjoys the Marx brothers movies. I know he wasn't disappointed.
